Bolduc bought the farm in 1991 and started sugaring in 1993, largely to give himself something to do in the early spring and help offset the restlessness that often hits New Englanders this time of year. And he suspects that's a big reason why so many people showed up at the sugarhouse on this cold and windy March day: "Maine Maple Sunday is so well received because basically Mainers have cabin fever and they need to go out and do something," he says. "We've taken a lemon and made lemonade and this is a celebration of spring — that's what it boils down to."
