Maple Making



MAPLE MAKING -— Reuben Long, 17, talks with a visitor while he runs the evaporator making maple syrup during the 2021 Kentucky Maple Day. Long’s family owns Southdown Farms at Craft’s Colly, and his father, Seth Long, is president of the Kentucky Maple Syrup Association. Seth Long said more than 160 people from outside the area and as far away as Bowling Green and Bristol, Va., visited the farm on Saturday. Long said they sold 103 bottles of maple syrup, 800 maple cookies, 250 maple-glazed and maple-bacon doughnuts, 75 maple whoopie pies, and 18 stickie buns, and served 100 cups of free coffee.
