    Well you might have always had a dream of having 200000 taps.(some folks get off on building massive things)...if sugaring has been your lifes work,,you have the oppertunity to build an opperation where that many taps come into the sugarhouse without trucking,,and you have a customer lined up to buy you syrup......and with strong interest from people with money to get into the sugaring game you might think that once built you could sell the opperation....i can think of many reasons

    I’m with you flat but from what I can gather the people putting up those huge places don’t mind the loss and use it for a tax write off. We (the smaller producer) would have to sell everything we own to cover the loss.

    With the low bulk prices you might see a boost in production to try and make up for the lower price. If some don't go out of business the price is going much lower.

    I think this thread is getting kinda off topic and I admit it is humorous. I have noticed that I do think a few people are Hanging it up this year and selling out. Is it above average I can't say but there has been a fair amount of newer stuff out there for sale where it appears people are raising the white flag . I doubt it will have any effect on the bulk price but it is a trend perhaps?
