The Benton Family has been making maple syrup for five generations. You might say it’s in our blood! When the sugar house was moved to its current location in 1983 from Millbrook Road, it began as a place to sell our syrup. With more traffic and visitors on the main road, we decided to turn the family farm into a ski touring center and added a place where folks could sit and eat a small meal before skiing. We served hotdogs, hamburgers, chili, homemade soups and Ma’s famous baked beans and the basic Pancake Platter. To keep up with the growing demand of loyal customers who were less to ski and more to eat, we added our dining room addition in 1999, and the rest is history!
Mo Fun, the artist formerly known as Mo The Clown, is a Balloon Buffoon!
What does that mean? He is irrepressible, a New Hampshire balloon artist, balloon sculptor, balloon twister, deco twister, fool and so much more!
Mo the Clown rarely performs in makeup anymore. He has found that circus clowns adopted larger than normal features to be understood from the distant seats, where they could be seen, but maybe not heard. Those characteristics can be overwhelming in a closer setting.
As the circus clown look appeared more often in day to day life its failures spawned quite a bit of Bad Clown media to fuel the imagination. Coulrophobia, the abnormal or exaggerated fear of painted clown faces and other bizarre attire (Santa, the Easter Bunny), is a common specific phobia in America today.

The Fadden Family like many early settlers of the early 1800’s harvested maple sap and produced syrup and sugar for their own use or to trade for supplies. It wasn’t until the 1930’s that they got down to producing maple products in a big way when they acquired a commercial maple syrup production. Always striving to produce top quality maple products, their efforts over the decades have been rewarded with many blue ribbons at various fairs, four previous Carlisle Trophies and a Governor’s Cup for the best male syrup in North America. With this year’s award, the Fadden Family has won the Carlisle Trophy five times.
