In Dover Plains, located in eastern Dutchess County, sprawling weekender estates sit in cozy proximity to trailer homes. County routes twist back into wooded areas, giving way to multi-generation farms and thick copses of trees. The more observant traveler may spy a web of interlocking colored tubes -- black, white and blue -- jutting from trees and threading through acres of woods. This is not a new Christo installation, but another maverick enterprise: Madava Farms, the maker of Crown Maple Syrup.
