Earlier this month we received our new maple sugar sifter from Sunrise Metal. This one measures 12×36″ and has a larger motor than our previous 12×12″ sugar sifter. With this new one we’ll be able to dump an entire 50 pound batch of sugar in to sift all at once. With three times the surface area we should rarely clog up now, it should allow us to sift 1000+ pounds without cleaning. Checkout the video below
Last year we setup three of our four woods with the Datacer monitoring system. We used Smartrek on our fourth property, but didn’t like the system as much. For the coming 2023 season we’ve replaced Smartrek with Datacer. Installation was a breeze after setting up the other three systems last year. We’re looking forward to tapping in two months!
