Season Slideshow and Summary
Well folks, we’ve heard the peepers and the call of spring and sunshine! It’s safe to say that the 2023 maple season has come to an end in these parts so it’s time to share our stats as well as our slideshow.
We boiled 6,000 gallons of syrup this year from 437,000 gallons of sap collected, which is more than we did each of the past two years. This winter was definitely different, with much less snow. Secondly, unlike the last two years, there was sap flow in February, allowing us to have our first boil earlier in the year.
It’s a good thing the season is over because we had some crazy winds here over the past two weekends that caused dozens of trees to fall on our properties as well as a loss of power. We’ll have some cleanup to do this spring along with untapping the trees so they can heal for next season.
