In addition to the delicious, locally-sourced maple syrup and honey for sale, we are now adding a few more items to the list. You can pay with cash, check or card during regular Tuesday and Friday pick up times.
Harms Family Farm in Colrain, MA has been selling syrup at Stearns Farm for almost a decade, while Sonya was working here and Luke was making syrup in the mountains of Maine. Luke also built the impressive cabinet to display all the products we have available for purchase under the pavilion.
Their syrup comes in three grades: Grade A medium amber has a light, candy-like hint of maple flavor. Grade A dark has more maple flavor but is not as sweet. Grade A very dark has an even stronger maple flavor that is ideal for cooking.
The honey comes courtesy of one of own sharers, Arthur Johnson, of Arthur’s Apiaries. Arthur keeps his hives right here at the farm, as well as a few other places in the area. You have probably encountered some of our resident busy bees working away this season in the PYO flower garden and among the raspberry bushes.
Chaga mushrooms are harvested from trees such as birch and are used to make hot tea or an alcohol-based tincture. Consuming chaga has been linked to a decrease in inflammation and boosts in immune system and antioxidant functioning. Personally, I find it has a neutral, earthy flavor when enjoyed as a hot tea. It is recommended that chaga mushroom tea or tincture be consumed on an empty stomach for best results.
