Here's info and directions from Sapsquatch:

About: Sapsquatch is a is a small-scale community supported sugarbush with about 500 taps. We produce a variety of maple products and offer educational events on the farm. We are also harvesting ramps every spring to sell at local restaurants, innoculating logs for future mushroom production and looking into other long term native crops such as Ginseng.

Crop Mob Tasks: We will be getting in wood for the 2012 maple season. If anyone is a confident chopper, bring your splitting mauls. We could also use a heavy duty cart or 3 if anyone has access. We have been busy thinning out a new section of sugarbush which will be tapped for the first time next year. There are many piles of wood that needs to be moved to our chopping and staging area then stacked in the shack. Kids can look for ramp seeds while adults haul wood and are welcome to play in the creek if parents are ok with mud. We will feed the crew ramp pesto pasta for lunch.

Location: 2247 Mecklenburg Rd., Enfield, NY 14850
