The theme for this year is early start and a big lull. Still better than shoveling.
We had our earliest start ever mid February and the best run ever during the thunder and lightning storm the 1st week of March. Things have slowed down with very little sap flowing this past week. But the season isn’t over yet.
Sugar content in the sap is down this year overall due to the early start. It is taking up to 50 gallons of sap to make 1 gallon of syrup. However we are very happy with the quality of the syrup.
The trees seem to know it’s not spring yet.
If you are interested in purchasing syrup see the products page for pricing and ordering information.
