Vermont Maple Syrup – 2023!

by | Feb 17, 2023 | 8 comments

Sweet People,

A year ago, I wasn’t sure I’d be around. Lisa and I moved to Las Vegas to be closer to family, take desert walks in the sunshine, see every great concert we could, and deal with a serious health challenge. We said goodbye to the farm, and farewell to friends and family in New England.

But a funny thing happened on the way to the Southwest.

The family who purchased the farm were interested in finding someone to keep up the tradition of making Maple Syrup (They are wonderful people). After thinking about it for a fraction of a second, Hank and I agreed that we would run the Sugar House the same as always, sharing the small batch farm crop with families and friends.

So, against all odds, and with much gratitude to my higher power and all of you… We have begun making Vermont Gold this past week.

And yes, the Bob and Lisa Maple Syrup Store is now open and taking orders. This is not your mass produced syrup (which ain’t bad – you can find it cheaper in Costco). Hank and I boil this the old fashioned way, in small batches. We tap 400 trees. When the nights get below freezing, and the days are warm, the sap flows. For about 5 or 6 weeks it gets crazy. Then we bottle it, package it, and drive the boxes to the Springfield VT Post Office to send to you.

As always, we are grateful for your support, and happy to still be a small part of your morning. And during the next few weeks, don’t be too surprised if the podcast comes to you live from the Sugar House.

Every Day Is A Gift,

The Bob Rivers Show - Podcast

Bob and BJ have been best friends and Trekkies for over 20 years. BJ is still bummed that 'The Bob Rivers Show - KZOK' beat 'BJ Shea - KISW' for "Star Trek walk-on roles for the Show Host and a Listener". Because I got to be on Star Trek. And he didn’t. I can't blame him. But had it not gone that way, we wouldn’t be having this insightful Podcast with Amy Ulen. Author, Teacher and so much more - Amy was the bonafide trekky and the lucky listener who joined me for the walk-on roles. Prepare for Warp Speed! Live long and prosper 🖖 [...]

Bob and Pete were 17 and 19 years old. If you remember top 40 radio, when we were kids, you might enjoy the behind the scenes story of 2 teenage best friends breaking a few rules and helping to create a radio station that’s still a success today. They started working together just out of high school. Bob went on to a lifelong career hosting mornings. Pete Salant launched a #1 station in New York City, and became one of the top programming consultants in the country. Along with Ed Kelly, we reminisce, but also celebrate the talent of today. Although the business has changed [...]

You may remember our podcasts with Tami Asars, and her dramatic tales live from the Appalachian Trail as she completed the Triple Crown of backpacking. Pacific Crest Trail, Continental Divide Trail, and The Appalachian Trail. Just looking up the mileage on those will give you blisters. Tami never rests. She has a new book out, "Fall Color Hikes: Washington". We delve deeper into the rewards of becoming one with nature on the trails. And also snakes, bears, and other wild animals. My cohost for this podcast is filmmaker author, lifelong friend and hiking buddy Steve Stockman. You’ll like his dry sense of humor and his [...]
