    Default Sugar Shacks!

    Maple Syrup season in full swing! I was out last weekend to visit one of my favorite sugar shacks: Ben's in Temple NH. They were boiling away, making syrup, candy, etc.

    I was wondering if others have a favorite sugar shack they like to visit this time of year. Do any of you know of good places for breakfast?

    Thanks for starting this thread. Wife wants to visit a place this weekend and I have been trying to think of a place to go. She had mentioned Temple area. I think she really wants to go to Parker's Maple Barn in Mason NH. That place is crowded.

    I should mention I had a really nice conversation with Ben (owner of Ben's). I had read an article about him in the paper last year and was really hoping to meet him. He took over his family business at 15! He decided that making maple syrup was what he wanted to do then, and has been working hard at it ever since. He is credited for creating a state-wide confederation of these small family businesses which used to be very competitive. He is trying to promote NH maple products to be on-par with the Vermont products. I was very impressed with him. I also found out that he and his head of sales both love to off-road with their lifted F250s. They said they have a couple of the private properties where they tap that they would be happy to take a small group and show. They seem like good people too. I think most of these places are.

    Did the place in Sunapee have a restaurant? I was looking for a place where I might get breakfast. :^)

    Would rather find a good sugar mama instead ;)

    Still a cool thread though :)
    Traction, articulation, and gearing make a good off-road rig. Just a big lift, wide mud tires, and a winch simply do not.

    I went to high school with Ben, he's a year or two younger, one of my best friends wired most of the generators for his setup. I've got a bottle of his syrup in the fridge, great stuff :) He has definitely made a great business out of it and is always doing something different with the syrup flavor.
