Know Your Farmer - Harwood Heritage

“When I was a child, I remember watching my father hard at work in the sugar shack every year in March,” he recalls. “It was a really neat experience.”
“It was an all-night thing to keep up,” he adds. “I remember the glow of the fire and being in there on the dirt floor of the shack."
