MAPLE SYRUP TIME AT THE COLLINS FARM IN FAIRFAX, VERMONT

John Collins and his wife Betty still live on the family farm. Owen & Imogene Collins, John's parents, moved to Fairfax in the early 1940s. John's son Jeff Collins, his brother Tom Collins, and a neighbor, David Woodward who were out gathering more sap for the operation had not arrived yet when I was there.
