Dohner's Maple Camp

Dohner's Maple CampLocally tapped maple syrup, maple sugar and candy

On our farm, making maple syrup is the winter crop in February and March. Sales continue throughout the year at the Market, our farm and several festivals in the area.

We started making pure maple syrup in 1983, as a hobby, using buckets and a wood fire to boil down the sugar sap from the maple trees. Now the operation has grown to a year-round business using modern methods and equipment to ensure a deliciously sweet, pure, syrup. We never add anything to the syrup; it is all from the trees.

Hedy RiegelHandmade jewelry, gifts and home accessories

I capture a vintage-industrial-chic aesthetic in the handmade jewelry, gifts and home accessories I create. Common elements that I use include religious medallions and rosaries, vintage watch parts, vintage costume jewelry, and skeleton keys, vintage linens, doilies, embroidery and fabrics. I love working with multimedia supplies; so my selection varies from hand-sewn aprons, scarves, headbands and bags to jewelry, notecards, pillows and holiday-inspired gifts. Visit my website for more information and follow my work on Facebook and Twitter.
