The Sugarmakers

An experienced crew grapples with the forces of nature to produce high-quality maple.

This heartwarming documentary follows Stanley Holmes, Jr. and his crew as they tap sugar maples and then gather the sap and boil it to produce maple syrup at Holmhurst Farm in southern Quebec. Erin Holmes traces her family’s more than century-old tradition of sugaring and shares her personal memories of working in the sugarbush and the sugarhouse.

    The Sugarmakers is a local public television program presented by WNED PBS.
