    Wow! That's a lot of wood. You must have one of the larger wood-fired operations.

    I got nervous about having jugs for the season and went ahead and placed an order from Bascom. The funny thing is that 2 of the 4 packages arrived by a little car, instead of a Big Brown van. The 3rd box is due later tonight. I'm wondering if the guy's running back to the terminal with his little car to get that one because he couldn't fit them all in. Then box 4 is due Friday. What do you bet that Big Brown shows up for the single 4th box?

    Red face Hello NEK Sugar Makers - ISO assistance w new sugarbush

    Hi Everyone,

    Hope y’all had a semi decent Thanksgiving given the circumstances of this bizarre time. I am a new maple tapper and have built a sugar house to get started into this addictive sport. I have a good amount of trees accessible to me, but I am looking to start off tapping 50-100 taps on gravity this year as a start. I am looking for someone to show me how to do a well planned layout and the how to’s of rigging the mains and laterals and drops in this first sugarbush. If you all know of anyone, or would be willing, I am open to hearing from them/you regarding cost and services. I really want to start off on the right foot this year, and hope to continue adding to my small operation. Any feedback or help would be greatly appreciated....
