    Default any updates on Sweet Tree and Crown Maple?

    since the thread on bulk syrup has slowed down, I figured we all needed another light topic of discussion...

    any one have an update on Sweet Tree? Parker and I were up there on the tour last July - they were talking about doing some distilling, 350k taps by this year, etc... Anyone have an update?

    and Crown Maple? someone I think mentioned that they were looking to setup a new woods in Vermont?

    could be all just rumors of course ...

    Last I heard about crown was that they had bid out another 75k tap job and wanted them in by December. Everyone I talked to doubted they would get that many in by then. Ultimate goal is 275k taps. Not sure where it was but I thought in NY still
    Algier 2x6
    Around 2500 taps
    Polaris ATVs, Ski Doo snowmobiles to get around
    Atlas Copco, Surge SP-22 pumps

    5 tours being offered by VT that is hosting the IMSI meeting this year. All come with a cost that also includes lunch.
