Brian K. Mahoney, Chronogram Editorial Director
Crown Maple hosted the first Chronogram Conversations networking and community discussion event of the new year at their state-of-the-art facility on January 13. Attendees arrived to find a local craft food, beverage, and artisan marketplace spread out across the maple syrup facility’s evaporator room. Tasters from Salt Point Mead, Milea Winery, Sprout Creek Farm cheese, Denning’s Point spirits, and Breezy Hill Orchards cider were in abundance. Amy Lewis-Sweetman chatted about her reclaimed farm sculptures and Mena Messina demonstrated jewelry design and making.
