Taste of Pontiac: Maple Syrup from Muddy Hands Winery

Categories: 

Spring is officially here, and the sap has started flowing!

Maple Syrup is available at Muddy Hands Farm & Winery, located at 1965 Route 148 -- at the two lanes in Luskville.

Watch for our signs on the 148.

$11 for 1/2 Litre
$20 for 1 Litre.

Guaranteed to be free of any contaminents, and completely lead free -- which is commonly present in most "backyard" maple productions. 

Government tested and inspected.

This year, we've extended our Maple syrup production significantly -- partnering with a local company that boils off the sap and packages it for us with all the necessary (and legal) nutritional information.

As always, our products are of high quality.  

Who are we?

The name of our farm, Muddy Hands Farm & Winery, is named from the simple belief that amazing things come with passion, love, and hard work(tm).  We continue to strive to provide amazing quality products for your family -- directly from ours.

We know you will enjoy them as much as we do.

Many are aware that we've been selling quality farm related products here for a couple years -- fresh eggs, organic turkey and chickens, honey, beeswax candles, etc.

We've also planted our first vineyard in the spring of 2013, and you can expect some very interesting surprises from us in the coming years.  Pay attention, because something very exciting is coming to the Pontiac!

Please note: our store front hasn't been built yet, and the products are sold from the farm gate -- directly from our home.

Community soccer classes started up on Tuesday, May 1st at the Luskville Recreational Park. The two- to four year-olds play in the softball field. The older group, aged five and up, play on the soccer field to the north.

Current Situation:

The Québec residual materials management strategy includes a progressive reduction and an eventual a 'ban' of organic material from municipal landfills by 2020. Municipalities that comply with the policy are eligible for funding to help offset the costs. As with the Municipality of Pontiac, many municipalities have chosen to pass resolutions to initiate door-to-door collection, with costs paid for by the residents.

Remember this?

As the Pontiac watches epic levels of flooding in both New Brunswick and B.C. and considers our own possible return to inundation, it's time to let paranoia rear its helpful head and get ready to get out of the house. The concept behind having a so-called Go Bag is to have ready everything you might need to survive, out-of-doors, for about 72 hours... until help arrives or the zombies get you.

A hilarious one-hour play called Maid to Order was presented in Shawville April 13 and 14 by local theatre troupe, the Pontiac Community Players (PCP). Sold-out on both evenings, the profits will go towards the Pontiac High School restoration project to update lighting, sound and add a 20-foot electronic screen to be used for both school and community movie screenings. Further improvements to seating and ventilation are planned.

Above, hapless police officers Craig Young (left) and Neil MacIntosh (right) ask the slightly-shady Charles Cambin (Richard Armitage) to explain himself.

Better than a new welcome mat, a shining floor now greets visitors to the Maison de la Famille in Quyon, thanks to funding from the Ministère de la Famille. A new epoxy surface was poured last week, creating a seamless floor running though out the reception area, the Clothing Counter, kitchen and laundry.
