The woodlot that we tap trees on was orginally owned by
Ellie Sharp, Boyd's great-grandfather. The tradition was
started in 1934. However the process was only carried
out a few years ending after Grampie Sharp's passing.
No one in the family continued the tradition until Boyd
purchased 1/2 of the original woodlot from his
granparent's Dos and Etta Morse. Boyd discovered pieces
of the old operation and decided to put it all back
together in the summer of 1983 to collect the first sap in
1984. The business has grown from 150 taps to over
3,000 taps in the last 30 years.
