It's a sticky business: Jake's Syrups brings sweet success for rural Vergas pair
RURAL VERGAS -- Life is sweet for Jerry Jacobson and D. Mae Ceryes.
Since they first began the enterprise known as Jake's Syrups & Natural Products in 1994, the rural Vergas residents have parlayed their hobby into a successful part-time business.
From March to mid-April, the couple's chief occupation is producing maple syrup.
Jacobson taps the trees -- about 1,600 taps on 120 acres -- and Ceryes handles the evaporation process.
