The Maple Sugar Book

The Maple Sugar Book by the well known pioneering New Englanders.

Maple Sugar Book by Helen and Scott Nearing

Helen & Scott Nearing

From their famous “Good Life” series

“Maple sugaring was an important source of cash for the Nearings, as it continues to be for many New England farmers today. This book is filled with a history of sugaring from Native American to modern times, with practical tips on how to sap trees, process sap, and market syrup. In an age of microchips and software that are obsolete before you can install them, maple sugaring is a process that’s stood the test of time. Fifty years after its original publication in 1950, The Maple Sugar Book is as relevant as ever to the homestead or small-scale commercial practitioner.”

“Chelsea Green publishing (White River Junction, Vermont) is pleased to honor their example by publishing a new edition of The Maple Sugar Book, complete with a new section of never-before-published photos of the Nearings working on the sugaring operation, and an essay by local Greg Joly (Jamaica, Vermont) relating the story behind the book and placing the Nearings’ work in the context of their neighborhood and today’s maple industry.”
