    Nate, where is this information available? I would think that the politicians from all of the Maple Syrup producing states should be made aware that they are, in essence, taking away from there constituents. That's not right.

    I dont want to Hyjack this thread but do some Google Searches and you will find all kinds of info on how corn and sugar beets are subsidized in the United states, some articles claim up to 4 billion dollars a year just on sugar beets , white sugar is made from sugar beets and Cane sugar. There was actually a time when the railroads were running that Sugar Beets were grown here in Fryeburg Maine. Anyway theres alot to the story of how white Sugar is Subsidized and corn syrup and it is a very complex issue, but I still dont have to like it.

    And to clarify - we can also do what we want in Ontario, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia. The Federation only covers syrup produced in Quebec. In the rest of the country we can add as many taps as we want and sell as much syrup to whomever we please. Not trying to pick a fight - just making it clear that you can't lump all Canadian syrup into the same basket. We have similar challenges competing with the syrup from Quebec but are obviously not affected by the effects of the exchange rate between $US vs $Cdn. Supply is one big cause of low prices in the states right now but the $0.25+ reduction in our dollar (compared to say 2011) is definitely a bigger factor.

    At present, U.S. maple syrup bulk prices are dictated about 90% by the Canadian Exchange rate and about 10% by oversupply. That is for the wider market. In some areas there is more oversupply and thus lower prices, while in some regions syrup is considerably less abundant and the prices are a bit higher.

    I am Marc from Deerfield NH. So now after starting out 2010 with 30 taps and gone over 800 plus as of today waiting to see what will happen. I went hole hog buying the land to try and get 1500 taps for a cash crop. I made an inquire on bulk price today. I get a price from B-----m .75 less pr. pound than I got 2014 when I got hooked. I got to feel my head.
