Link to Other Farms

The link that you have given to go and look at all the other Maple Sugar Farms throughout the state DOES NOT WORK. I have tried to go there more than once and tried adding other things that might make it a real site, but none of it worked.

I would appreciate you fixing it so that I can look up some Maple Farms that are closer to my home.

Thank you so much for taking care of this matter in a timely manner.
