Hello! We are Get Bent! Maple Products; a small family farm start-up located in the Annapolis Valley. More specifically, Paradise. I am so excited to introduce you to our family and would like to invite you with us on this journey we're about to take!
We're approaching the end of August 2020 and the excitement of Fall lies just around the corner. Our new syrup pans arrived last week (thank you Derek!!) and our plans to start the official sugar shack are in motion. The last two seasons of making syrup have only been a hobby, a tradition that we'd been yearning to rekindle in our family. Since the expansion of our family it dawned on us that we are not only the next generation; we are creating the next generation. This perspective on life has motivated us to transform these traditions into a lifestyle on which our children can thrive.
Going back to basics.
I feel this is what most of us need in life. It's so easy to get lost in this ever-changing world of social media and technology, and this past year of COVID-19 has been especially unkind. How easy is it to stay cooped up inside, browsing the internet, having negative news and politics dominating the headlines. Lifting restrictions so it didn't feel wrong to go outside was the best highlight of the summer! I digress.
The point is, getting back to basics is a way to reevaluate our lives and to shed the negativity brought on by COVID, and to look into the future with a fresh perspective.
With a plan.
Anyone can get back to basics. It's all about how you do it. In our case we are taking this phrase quite literally and turning this year of COVID into an opportunity to bring back a tradition that will never be outdated or replaced.
We're excited for this coming season and what 2021 will bring!
