The Fletcher Family Farm in East Washington, New Hampshire has been in operation for five generations. Currently owned by Ed and Jane Thayer, the farm is a self-sustaining homestead that raises pork, chicken, beef and turkey, grows green vegetables, potatoes, corn and pumpkins and produces 110 gallons of maple syrup annually. All animals are raised free range in movable paddocks and whenever possible work is done with draft animal power.
The most recent sugarhouse that my grandfather, Norman Fletcher, built in 1954 is still in use today and is located across the street from our farmhouse. We have updated the sugaring equipment, added electricity, a canning room and refined the collection process, but the basic sugaring operation remains the same.
Presently, we produce about 1,200 pounds or 110 gallons of syrup annually. We boil on a 30” wide x 8’ long drop flue evaporator with an airtight front and a forced draft blower. The unit averages about 60 gallons of water evaporation per hour.read more
