    Default Where to sell bulk syrup.

    Here's a big THANKS to my "tree owning" neighbors.

    And yes.....we too.....have a bunch of chickens.
    Correction... they went on strike..so the chickens are now gone.

    No...that's not true. We got some more chickens and sure enough...they are NOT laying.
    We never learn.

    Is there a reason why they stopped? I'm curious if there is a problem with the syrup stored in those containers, and I bought my containers from them.

    No problem with the syrup stored in them assuming they are cleaned and packed correctly. They, like many buyers, are just sick of dealing with thousands of these containers.

    Try the classifieds on here and Craigslist. With it being a down year for most, shouldn't have any problem selling bulk syrup.
