Maple Syrup Thief Hits Local Farm
It's an unfortunate case in which the honor system was taken advantage of.
Miller and Son Orchards farm store in Dummerston, Vermont has been running the same honor system for eight generations - they leave the doors unlocked, and trust customers to leave money for things like eggs, meat, apples, and syrup.
And despite the recent theft of more than 63 gallons of maple syrup, they will continue with the same business approach. However, they do plan to install security cameras.
