This will be our fourth year tapping trees as part of our Science class. The past few years have been awesome. The children do most of the work and our methods are very home grown. We have a home made boiler from a 55 gallon drum and we boil on two open fires using giant pots. Is there anyone that would be willing to donate or help us get a more advance pan for the top of our 55 gallon drum boiler..we currently just use pots on top of the surface. We have a welder just need some stainless...ha.

Wish us luck. I will post our great pics as they arrive. Here we are transforming our sandbox to the boiling area. If you happen to wind up with some spare sap.. This year we were denied access to many of the maples we used to tap.
