“This is my mother’s mother’s place,” Dan gestures at their farm. “My great, great grandfather made maple syrup,” for trade, he adds. Several generations later, high school sweethearts Dan and Dorinda, and much of the Potter family, work the same sugar bush, which they've recently certified organic. “We like our sap to stay extremely fresh – if the sap clouds over, it affects the flavor, so we keep ours clear as water,” Dorinda notes. Employing 10 people at times, they’ve hit a milestone: Dan’s finally been able to drop his day job.
