    Maple is moving global. Russia and Asia are making syrup now, although small levels now they are setting up for it. Trees are growing and at some point will be competition.

    If your biggest concern over this news is whether you’ll be able to receive the same fittings and spouts, you should be all set. And people wonder why our GDP is all out of whack.

    I think you missed my point. Good water is global market. Clean energy is a global market. Transportation is a global market. On a global scale maple is a very small niche market. For a company the size of H2O to invest in maple shows a commitment to the industry not just from the monetary side. That is just my opinion.
    First introduced to making maple syrup in 1969
    Making syrup every year since 1979
    3 x 10 oil fired
    Revolution syrup and max flue pan
    Almost 1300 taps total with 900 on high vacuum
    Bought first Marcland drawoff in 1997, still going strong.

    Congrats to H2o, it will be interesting to see if they can get the leader rep I deal with to return my calls. In the meantime CDL gets the money.

    1100 taps on low vaccum, 900 on gravity.
