Corse Farm 733 Corse Rd.
Corse Farm has been a part of Whitingham's history since 1868 and
maple and dairy farm is currently operated by 4th, 5th, and 6th generations
of the family who have actual production records that date back
1918. The Corse Farm has the largest and most extensive sugaring
operation in town with over 9000 taps, and their production ranges
to 3000 gallons of syrup annually. In addition to their own maple
trees, the Corses lease trees in Whitingham from 12 other property
and by sap from other sugarers who do not have their own evaporators.
Sugar making is very labor intensive and the Corse operation is
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
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
the incoming sap before the sap is boiled. A large filter press is
also utilized to remove unwanted particles from the syrup. All
the Corse's finished products are sold in retail containers, at the
farm, by mail order and through retail outlets in the area.
