    The Pattee family has been making award winning syrup for years, I would hope that everyone would have the sense not to question there production methods.

    No need to get testy or question Fred's integrity.
    The OP was asking about Vermont buyers not Ohio.

    To answer the original question, it only matters if you have grade A syrup representative of the grade it is. Then the only difference is if it is certified organic or not. Organic with documentation commands about $.15/lb more. It does not matter if it was collected in buckets (as long as there is no lead issue) or if it was wood fired, or gas, or oil or whatever fuel.

    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.

    Itís common knowledge that different trees will offer up different flavors.
    But I still donít think syrup from buckets tastes any different than syrup from tubing or bags.
