The syrup shop offers a variety of flavors, chokecherry, blueberry, strawberry and rhubarb. The owners say they enjoy coming back every year because of the customers and the great way the faire is run.

They say everything's always run smoothly here and it's a clean, nice environment to operate in. Jake's Syrups is based in Vergas, Minnesota and the owners say it's special to be here because it's like operating out of their backyard.

“We have a lot of followers. People who come back for our syrup year after year and it is just kind of nice to see everybody. Everybody kind of comes in from the lake and hangs out in town.”

Another booth that's been around all 10 years is a store that offers customized weather vanes and signs for the farm.
