Our neighbors here a bit south of sunridge are commercial
producers. The one thing to know about making maple
syrup (other than which trees to tap) is that it takes around
40 gallons of sap to make one gallon of syrup. Takes a lot
of boiling to remove enough water. We have a sugarbush
on our farm but I let my neighbor collect it.
Yes that's a fact. However, for personal use, the 1 quart syrup/10 gallons sap, I made will last us most of the year. And..... this is the biggie. The joy and satisfaction of making your own ANYTHING is priceless. It cannot be purchased for any amount of money.
My global warming comment was a joke. I never believed in it and this winter proves that weather is cyclical. Unless we start directly trying to control and mess with it.
Weird as I see irregular weather patterns prove climate change (aka global warming) And I do believe that we are already messing with it. Polar ice caps melt, ice melt goes into sea, changes temps and salinity, changes jet stream and etc....
