The first hints of spring bring maple sirup season to central Illinois. As the ground starts to thaw and the sap starts to run, workers at Funk’s Grove Pure Maple Sirup spring into action to collect the sap and turn it into sirup.

Mike Funk, fifth generation maple sirup producer, talks about the tradition in this week’s Farm Fresh Podcast.

For more on the sirup making process and where to find Funk’s Grove Pure Maple Sirup, check out their website or take a look at this article from the Illinois Farm Bureau® Partners magazine.
