NORTH HADLEY SUGAR SHACK
Brothers Joe and John Boisvert first started making maple syrup in their teens, and through high-school, took up farming. In 1995 the brothers purchased the family farm and built their Sugar Shack. One year later they opened the North Hadley Sugar Shack to serve New England pancake breakfasts that featured their own maple syrup.
The popularity of their maple sugar products allows the brothers to be open daily from Feb. 25th - April 17th for their pancake breakfast and sugaring tours. Through the summer, from May until mid August, the sugar house is closed. From mid August until December 23rd the sugar house is open daily featuring fall squashes, fall decorations like Indian corn, straw bales, gourds, mums and pumpkins. They stay open through the Holiday season making maple gift baskets, Christmas trees, and decorations.
Farming is their livelihood. The Boisvert's believe that “Massachusetts grown and fresher” is not only a terrific slogan, but an honest fact. They are committed to using local products whenever possible. The strawberries used in their recipes come from their own farm, as well as the pumpkin and zucchini. They buy all their blueberries from local growers. Diemand Egg Farm in Wendell, Massachusetts supplies them with fresh eggs and the milk and cream products are from the Kokoski family’s Mapleline Farm in Hadley.
The animal village at their farm opens in February. You are welcome to go inside and pet the animals. They are very friendly.
