In this slide show, photographer Jeffrey Newcomer captures the charm of the annual Sap Gathering Contest at Stonewall Farm in Keene, New Hampshire: an event that embraces the traditional method of collecting sap to make maple sugar.


No stranger to documenting life in New England, Jeff has served as a member, webmaster, and photographer for the Conservation Commission in his rural community of Chesterfield New Hampshire for over 30 years. He has used his photography to support the commission’s effort to preserve the town’s open and wild spaces. He enjoys wandering throughout all of New England, but in recent years has focused his photography on the Monadnock region of New Hampshire and southern Vermont, as well as the New England coast. His work can be seen at a number of galleries in the region, in publications and on his web site at: www.partridgebrookreflections. He also regularly blogs about photography in New England at: http://jeffnewcomerphotography.blogspot.com

  1. Henry David Thoreau Birthplace March 10, 2015 at 11:25 am #

    “I left home at ten and got back before twelve with two and three quarters pints of sap, in addition to the one and three quarters I found collected…Had a dispute with Father about the use of my making this sugar when I knew it could be done and might have bought sugar cheaper at Holden’s. He said it took me from my studies. I said I made it my study; I felt as if I had been to a university.” Henry David Thoreau, Journal, March 21,1856
