JILL AND RANDY GALUSHA
Randy and Jill Galusha- Maple Sugaring at Toad Hill Maple Farm by Jessica Kane It’s a cool, sunny day at Toad Hill Maple Farm. Owners Randy and Jill Galusha lead the way toward the sugar bush- 25 acres of naturally grown maples. A breeze rustles through the leaves as Randy explains how trees with larger crowns produce more sap that will be sweeter. Each tree was tapped back in early February- a process that is usually done on snowshoes by the Galusha’s and a few other friends. “I don't mind it when it’s nice out,” Jill said, laughing. “It can be pretty grueling,” Randy added. “But unfortunately, you gotta do what you gotta do. When sugaring season comes around, you can’t wait.” Randy enjoys the tapping process as well as running the long blue tubes down the mountain, which carry the thousands of drops of sap to a flow about the width of one’s baby finger. The sap is then pumped underground from the vacuum room into a storage tank behind the sugar house, and then into an evaporator, a shiny stainless steel machine five feet wide, 19 feet long, with automatic level controls and alarms on each pan to control temperature. It takes 40 gallons of sap to make one gallon of syrup, at a rate of 12 – 15 gallons per hour. The syrup is then filtered to remove a fine mineral particulate, called sugar sand, and stored in stainless drums, and filtered again before it’s loaded into retail containers, to ensure a clear product. “You can see right through it,” Randy said, holding up a glass maple-leaf shaped bottle filled with crystal clear light amber syrup. “He’s very fussy about how it looks when it’s in the glass,” said Jill, smiling. Randy started sugaring with his younger brother when he was about 10. They hung coffee cans on trees in front of his mom and dad’s house, until their dad felt sorry for them and started helping. Each year they added more and more buckets until they had 500. A friend hand-whittled a yoke out of basswood so they could carry the pales back to the tank on the sleigh. In time, they replaced the horses with a tractor, upgraded from buckets to tubing, got a truck to gather the sap from all the tubing, built the sugar house that’s still standing today and eventually, they invested in a small evaporator. In the meantime, Randy and Jill met in high school. Jill had moved to Thurman from Long Island where she’d been eating pancakes with Aunt Jamima syrup. “When I met him, he just kind of got me helping out,” Jill said, but that of course escalated into the partnership that continues today. It’s real family affair. Randy’s father Jim still helps with building projects and with hauling all the sap from the other sugar bushes a few miles away, Randy’s mom cooks meals for them in the sugar house all the time, and Randy and Jill’s two kids Nathan, 17, and Lindsay, 20, help out as well. Today, the Galusha’s have about 850 acres of land surrounding the tree where Randy and his brother first hung their coffee cans, and they keep expanding every year, simply because of Randy’s commitment to making everything more effective. “I’m never satisfied with things status quo,” he said, after we completed the tour of the sugar house. “I’m always trying to make things faster, or bigger and better. It’s just my nature to want to improve the efficiency of whatever I’m doing, and improve the production.” “I’m not saying we do it right every time. We make mistakes like everyone else. Then we correct the process and figure out how to do it a little better the next time.” The Galusha’s have had their share of mishaps like forgetting to close a valve and having syrup spray to the ceiling and onto the floor. Then there was the time his dad almost burned the shed down and had no choice but to put it out with sap, because there wasn’t any running water. And though this past season, which ended April 16th, produced the most syrup they ever have before - 903 gallons - they would have produced even more- but this winter’s ice storm sent broken limbs and tree tops crashing down on the tubing which froze in the snow. It was a disappointment, but as Randy said, that’s the exciting thing with sugaring- working with controlled disasters all the time. For the most part, Toad Hill Maple Farm runs like a well-oiled machine. In the old days, it would take four or five people three or four hours to gather all the sap. Now, with the tubing, they don’t have to have anyone gather it. In fact, without any distraction, one person can run the sugar house all by themselves, which makes things much easier for the Galusha’s since the sugaring business is their part-time endeavor. Yes, they run the Toad Hill Maple Farm on nights and weekends pretty much all year round. For their full time jobs, Jill is a Physicians Assistant in Glens Falls, and Randy is an Environmental Engineer with the Department of Environmental Conservation based in Warrensburg. “Many people don’t realize how much work it takes to make maple syrup,” Randy said. I certainly
9N Ford finished right side
The final product, took a few months and lots of time searching the internet for information and advice as I didn't know what I was doing. We had one similar to this one when I was a kid on the farm, in fact it was the first vehicle I ever drove. Ours was a 2N, built during the war. (WWII). According to the serial number on the engine, this one was built in 1946, thus actually making it a 2N! Except for tires, the air cleaner, the air pipe to the carburator, oil filter, paint and decals, everything is original. (Oops, and the alternator and battery, sorry!) The oil filter is a filter insert for a Mercedes, but it is the one that fits. I discovered that bit of information on-line as they don't make them for Ford 9N tractors anymore! The air cleaner was made in India. It is not the original model as the original had an intake tube sticking above the hood. You can see the hole for it just in front of the steering wheel. Perhaps I can locate a 'fake' intake to place in the hole to make it look original! You can buy almost any part for this tractor on line.
