    Default Sap Price

    Hey Everyone

    Does anyone know if the sap prices for the 2010 season have come out yet. I know it usually is printed in the maple digest but I haven't seen one yet this year, even though I am a member and I am supposed to recieve a copy. I have several people who are offering to sell me sap, but want to know a price, but don't know what to tell them because I want to be fair and stick with the standard pricing system. Any information would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    Meyer,
    Yes the new digest is out with the "new" prices. They are exactly the same as last year.

    It all depends on the sugar %. The posted prices in the Digest are the prtices paid "by some producers" and are only a rough guide. For example 2%=$.325/gal, 2.5%=$.45/gal and 3%=$.575/gal. The chart starts at 1% up to 5.5% by .1% incriments. To show it all here one would likely need permission. Why not google "Maple Syrup Digest" and order it. Not very costly, only $6/yr US, 8/yr US dollar, Canadian orders.. Besides, they have articles of interest to producers. By the way, the sugarhouse on the current cover was owned by a friend of mine. I heard he sold the farm and is now a guide in the Adirondaks. I don't know if it will be operating in the future under new ownership.

    Contact your association president if you are not getting copies of it so they can get it corrected.

    Default sap prices this year?

    There is so many people aruound here who are very protective of their maples for saw logs. Im offering 55 cents per gallon for minimum 2% sap to get some of these people to tap their trees and sell me sap. I dont have enough trees of my own to make the volume of syrup I want.
