In 1966, we opened our first vegetable stand on Elm Street in Sabattus village. In 1975, we built a larger stand to replace our first vegetable stand.
Jillson's Farm & Sugarhouse was built here at 143 Jordan Bridge Road in the winter of 1988-89. At this location, we have sugar parties, produce maple syrup and maple products, sell and grow fresh vegetables and flowers, and host many events throughout the year.
This website will introduce you to the many things we do here at Jillson's Farm & Sugarhouse. Enjoy your visit with us!.

Smell the pungent smoky air
Have patience in the quiet watch
Steaming sap turns to syrup slow
But soon we’ll all have some to share
Stepping out of the dark season
Sampling the soft glow of spring
Storing each golden drop of sun
To sweeten other seasons to come
Fairy tales do come true
At Sugarin’ Time!
Happily Ever After
By Marcy Cushman
The warm days and cool nights
Signal the start of tree tappin’
We grab a drill and pound a spile
You get a bucket to pour the sap in!
Friends and family helping out
Stoke the fire and start the boil
Look! I’m a princess living in the clouds
I love this sugarhouse castle!
Memories born and stories told
So good to see each one together
After all that winter weather
Seemed like it would last forever!
