    Default Tapping in Franklin county

    We managed to get 300 in this weekend. Made repairs and cut in new drops and tapped. We figured we would make one pass on each line rather than making two trips on each line. Next weekend we will try and get the other 300 in. The snow is over 3 foot and I cant walk on top of it very well. Well, hope everyone gets them all in and get a lot of sap.
    2012- 200 buckets 2 by 8 woodfired leader evaporator with hood and pre-heater. 2013-400 taps with cheek valves and new tubing system. 2014-600 taps with cheek valves and wesfab short bank filterpress and a 16 by 16 canner from Leader and a Kubota L3200 sap hauler.2016- new 250 gas powered Ro from Deer Run Maple. New Airablow 1000 tap gas powered vacuum pump and 1000 tap duel releaser and 1800 ft of sap transfer line to sugar house and down to 540 taps.

    I just went and looked at my tanks and the main line is dripping. Its snowing out and its around 35 degrees. Maybe things will start to change by next week. Spots of my mainline were under the snow,I walked all 1000 foot and cleared it. Well,all I can do is wait.

    Well,it looks like this friday will be the start for us here.Temps are predicted to be perfect for sap flow.It really is hard having new toys and not being able to use them.
