The Solar Sweet Maple Farm Story

With a distinct vision in mind, Tom Gadhue searched and searched for many years to find the perfect place to build his dream sugar house. He knew he wanted to create something unique – truly a beautiful site to see. With solar power and energy efficiency as his main goal, along with creating a “state of the art” facility, his dream was brought to life. In early winter 2010, we bought our sugarbush and immediately began preparing the site for building. We ventured up to the site the only way we could for the first stages, on a loader. We worked in waist deep snow every weekend for several months clearing the site to ensure prompt construction of the sugar house in the spring of 2011.
