Hired man on Frank H. Shurtleff farm gathering sap from sugar trees for making maple syrup. Sugaring is a social event and is enjoyed by all the young people in the neighborhood. The Shurtleff farm has about 400 acres, and was originally purchased by grandfather in 1840. He raises sheep, cuts lumber and has been making maple syrup for about thirty-five years. Sugaring brings in about one thousand dollars annually. Because of the deep snow this year he tapped only 100 of his 2000 trees. He expects to make about 300 to 500 gallons this year. North Bridgewater, Vermont
