The Corse Farm 733 Corse Rd.

The Corse Farm has been a part of Whitingham's history since 1868 and the combination maple and dairy farm is currently operated by 4th, 5th, and 6th generations of the family who have actual production records that date back to 1918. The Corse Farm has the largest and most extensive sugaring operation in town with over 9000 taps, and their production ranges from 2000 to 3000 gallons of syrup annually. In addition to their own maple trees, the Corses lease trees in Whitingham from 12 other property owners and by sap from other sugarers who do not have their own evaporators. Sugar making is very labor intensive and the Corse operation is no exception. In addition to family members the Corses hire 3 to 4 full time workers and up to six part-timers during their sugaring season. They have two sugar houses, the main one on Corse Road is open for the festival. It has a 6 foot by 20 foot King Evaporator with an Economizer which uses waste steam from the evaporator to help remove water from the incoming sap before the sap is boiled. A large filter press is also utilized to remove unwanted particles from the syrup. All of the Corse's finished products are sold in retail containers, at the farm, by mail order and through retail outlets in the area.
