    I think he's going for a sense of purity or wholesomeness in production methods. There may be a market for producers who are go back to basics and eschew the use of plastics and their inevitable demise in a landfill. Perhaps its similar to vegetable farmers who use work horses to till their land and use them as a selling point for their produce.

    It's Vermont Syrup. It does not taste the same. It's better.

    I guess you failed geography, Vermont is several hundred miles from Ohio CDL Fred. Syrup does taste different from different trees, different soil types and so on. As a bulk buyer if you tasted the syrup you are buying you should know that.

    BAP...so Vermont syrup from buckets taste different than syrup from tubing?

    No need to get testy or question Fred's integrity.

    The OP was asking about Vermont buyers not Ohio.

    nice to know your still a douche!! must be why ohio is always in the top tier with syrup at the national meeetings.

    BTW your right the syrup made in New Hampshire is mediocre, that's why bascoms buys from ohio, to get that nasty taste out of your midstate syrup

    Back at you because you still didn’t read the OP’S question along with others including a Moderator that he was asking for Vermont buyers, not Ohio, not New York. The OP was looking if anyone would be interested in buying Syrup made a certain way and be willing to pay more for it. There is absolutely nothing wrong with asking a question like that and trying to get a little more time for your product. Unfortunately, many on here are so dead set against believing that there actually is a difference in Syrup flavor from different locations, different production methods, how fast the sap was taken care and so on, that they keep belittling anyone who says there is. People need to get out of their own sugar house and go visit other producers in different locations to sample Syrup. I commend the OP for trying to find a niche market for Syrup they made with more basic production methods.
    By the way Fred, this is a friendly forum, not one to be calling people names. Maybe the Moderators need to be addressing that issue.
