Join our bucket list!

No, not that kind of bucket list.

We’re looking for names to hang on Steve Miller’s sap buckets in a unique Rent-A-Bucket fundraiser. For $25 you get your name (or the name of your mother, kids, dog, cat or spouse), on a bucket, a chance to visit it in the Millers’ picturesque sugarbush near Margaretville, and a personal tour of the saphouse to watch maple syrup being made while you enjoy a hot drink and other refreshments. You’ll go home with an 8 ounce bottle of fresh syrup, and some newly minted memories. Maybe even a selfie of you and your bucket.

We’re hoping the day for visits will be Saturday, March 8. But the way this winter is hanging on, it might be later. Needs to be 40s during the day, 20s at night for optimum sap run, so depending on conditions, we may have to push the date back a bit.
