Summer Update

We have been making preparations for next season, even as we continue to bottle on a regular basis to keep up the sweet cravings of our customer base. Our bottling unit has been upgraded  by adding a quick adjusting table.  This allows us to easily and rapidly adjust to different size bottles, as well as fill up to three bottles simultaneously.

In July, we visited a large maple operation in northern Minnesota which incorporates rerverse osmosis, thereby removing much of the water prior to the sap entering the evaporator. This reduces the time, but more importantly reduces the energy consumption to produce syrup. This may be one of our future upgrades.
