    Looks like the cold weather is holding on. Got 220 in so for and should finish with about 300 altogether. Looked back in my notes the last several years and we have boiled atleast 2-3 times by now. Thinking its going to be a fast and furious kinda year. I'll clean the evap tomorrow and be ready to go. Most of the tanks have nice icebergs building so that a plus. Take care

    Hi all , well I'm short on my goal, I was shooting for 800 but I stopped at 630 taps. Its all good with time constraints and all but I did tap a new woods which looks promising. I checked my calendar at the sugarhouse and last season at this time I had boiled 7 times and made 35 gallons. First boil tonight sweetened the pans and drew off a gallon of Delicate tonight. It was still running when I left the sugarhouse at 8Pm tonight. So I cleaned the tanks and Im ready to see what tomorrow brings. Have a great night and hopefully the next couple of weeks gives us a great season.

    Follow up for today, I had about 300 gallons to boil off , was not running today at all. I boiled it off and made 6 gallons of Light and Delicate. Really nice stuff, had a sugarhouse full of kids and adults, we tapped a few trees and hung some buckets. Great way to start the weekend, looks good for some colder nights coming up . Good luck all and God bless

    Finally got too boil Friday night. Great to be back at it for the season. Got the rig all sweetend up and made a couple gallons of amber on sunday afternoon. Sap started too roll in on Sunday around noon. Boiled everything we had and cleaned all the tanks. I'm ready for the flood LOL. Finished tapping on Sat morning puts us at 280 for the year. Hope they put out some sap because the 14 day forecast doesn't look that good for me high 55 and low 38. It will be fun while it last. Take care

    Been going pretty good here so far. Sugar started out at 1.8 then topped out at 2.2 and back down now at 1.5. So the RO is getting a work out, but working great for the money I have into it. Made all Amber so far with nice light color and great flavor. Thinking that the RO'ed sap helps get the syrup out of the pans quicker is a big part of the lighter color. I'm loving the new tank room it has been a big improvement for us this year. Hope everything is going well for everyone else. Take care

Ive got 850 collected today , so ill be at it early tomorrow morning. The sap started out at 2.4 but has been hanging around 1.7 for the last week. Last year the high I had for sap was 1.7 so im happy with the good start. Have a great weekend ,Al

    Hi everyone, boiled off the last of the sap today, made 5 gallons of VDR. Its taste great just really dark. The niter this year is crazy heavy, almost like mud in the pan. I emptied all the tanks today, scrubbed everything out in anticipation of this weeks run. Im at 80 gallons for the year ,which is better than last season, the sap is still running at 2.2 -2.5 you cant complain about that. Have a great weekend all .

    Been a crazy season to say the least here. 3 weeks of fast and furious. Had one small area that was a problem, but with some changes to the way the mainline and it should work out fine. Bottled 30 gallons this year, highest year so far. So on to the cleanup got most of that done yesterday. Should have a busy summer changing a lot of things in the woods. take care
