Shortly after moving into Capitaf, Milton did what many Vermonters do. He had to try his hand at making maple syrup.
Rose wrote about the adventure in their memoirs, Two Lucky People. “…Milton was inspired to tap a couple of our own sugar maples. My recollection of the experience is that the amount of sap we managed to collect always boiled away before it got to the syrup stage. This was not surprising when we learned that it took thirty to fifty gallons of sap to make one gallon of syrup.”
Every penny of the profits from sales of Milton’s Own Maple Sugar will be used to keep alive Milton Friedman’s winning ideas for achieving and maintaining a society committed to individual freedom and the resulting human well-being.
