    I thought 120-150 taps on an acre was pretty good. We had a little over 3,000 taps last spring and produced just over 1,300 gallons. They obviously misquoted the producer on the acreage and production.

    Reading this forum actually make me happy. I love the passion sugar makers have I to share that. I happen to think we would all benefit by more exposure to markets that may not be getting exposure. If this works for him think the potential sales it could generate by people seeking syrup from traditional sugermakers. Perhaps. I have on my amber glasses but this is good for most all producers

    my wife read the article and was dismayed, as am I, by the lack of research done by the publication to see if what crown had said was true. not only did they give bad math and sketchy science but made a point to belittle the maple syrup industry a a whole to make their operation seem like the best in the world. with bloggers and tweeters etc. it only takes one inaccurate comment to hurt us all. the publication is edible hudson valley. check it out and read the article and you may see that not all press is good press.

    I have to agree with this post. Misinformation helps nobody except Crown Maple.

    thank you mountainvan & wiam,


    finally someone who gets the point of why I was somewhat dismayed to see a wall street guy with no maple knowledge trying to "corner the market". My point was not that he can't do it (he can) but just what it CAN lead to.

    I have no problem with him making syrup and trying to "corner the market". I have a problem when he tries to make your syrup and more importantly MY SYRUP seem less than his when that is not true.

    It can be done.

    In my opinion what Crown is saying is not against any law, but it is slimy.
