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,

    Don’t worry that I only ordered 2 gallons this year. The bakery is closing for a few months while the head baker goes to the main land to help with her first (and probably only) grand child! So glad you can still be a part of the sugar shack.

The Bob Rivers Show - Podcast

Special Guest, Pro Musician, Comic, and amazing personality Chace McNinch. Thank you to my inspirational and kind niece JodyLynn, who spotted Chace performing in Montana. Chace happens to be Trans. Does that make you uncomfortable? I hope you will find her gentle sarcasm and acceptance of all people to be both inspired and contagious. If you believe identity politics is a load of crap that will be easy. Her story about a memorable encounter with Steven Tyler is hilarious. Standing up to a rock star was bold! We go behind the scenes to talk about the challenges and joys of performing, pre show nerves, and [...]

Andrew Rivers is in Las Vegas for his first ever headlining gig… it goes very well. We talk about his new steady (for now) girlfriend. Lisa and I zoomed with the two of them, and there seemed to be chemistry. We talked about Global Politics a little bit. I think Andrew is a radical centrist like me. Lisa pops in and talks about how disgusting the "Roast of Tom Brady" was on Netflix Listening to the audio on Podcast Service? See the Video at: - YouTube: YouTube Channel: --> ( Please 'Like' and 'Subscribe' for Livestream notifications ???? ) We are [...]

We’re back after a few months of Bob getting medical attention. So much to catch up on with Zip and Ed. Bob admits that he’s never known a Trans person, and we decide that’s going to change (.. In Part 2!) If Joe Biden were smart, he’d go on Howard Stern every week, and make John Stewart his campaign manager. If not, get used to Trump: The Sequel. The coolest new style of movie might just be the Netflix series “Ripley”. Vinyl has come back, why not Black and White video? Watch and be surprised how much you love it. A rigorous discussion of AI [...]
