Member Bio:
We own and operate a business but during the spring we are always guaranteed a "SPRING BREAK" which consists of 6-8 weeks in March and April. Kevin works in the field and I do the office work.

One spring he was on "SPRING BREAK", which means he doesn't have to get up and go to work but I did. So after a few days of having him interrupt me and me falling behind in my work, I told him he needed to go and tap some trees. Thus the beginning of "SPRING BREAK MAPLE".

In 2001 Kevin decided he wanted to become a beekeeper so he found a man by the name of Jim Delong who was a beekeeper and he called him. This was in July and he figured he would just get some information and begin his beekeeping in 2002, but low and behold Jim had just gotten a swarm of bees so he sold them to Kevin with all the gear to become a beekeeper. Thus the beginning of "SPRING BREAK MAPLE AND HONEY".

We have now turned these two hobbies into a business. We currently have just under 3000 taps, we currently have 25 beehives which produce extracted honey. Our products are available at local stores and gift shops throughout Maine and online. Please feel free to contact us anytime, we love to share both of these adventures. We hold open houses in the spring and you can stop in and watch maple syrup being made and sample many of the product lines we carry.
