    Default Annual survey

    As a MSPAC Director, we (MSPAC) would benefit to know what the Connecticut production was for 2012. If you are willing to share with us the number of taps you had and what you syrup production was for the season, please respond to this thread.
    This information is not only useful for National Agricultural Statistics, but important for us to apply for future grant monies.
