Maple Syrup in Kentucky

I was surprised to learn recently that maple syrup can be produced practically in my backyard. I always thought that it was something that was done way up north, after growing up reading about maple sugaring in Little House in the Big Woods. And then I recently read The Sugar Camp Quilt by Jennifer Chiaverini, where a family produces maple syrup in the countryside of Pennsylvania.

So maple was on my mind when I saw a post on Facebook from a local farm about their newest venture in maple syrup. I quickly started stalking their page, and made an appointment to go out to the farm and learn more.

My article about Riversong Farm and their maple syrup is in today's issue of the Spencer Magnet:

Maple Goodness Right Here in Spencer County

If you have arrived here after reading the article in the Magnet, welcome. For further information about maple production in Kentucky, see Maple Syrup: It's not Just From New England Anymore.

You can find out more about Riversong Farm at their website,, or on their Facebook page.
