Late Season Snow and Sap Flow Weakens

We were greeted by 3 inches of wet snow as we closed out our maple syrup production for the 2014 season.Sap flow decreased to less than 1/2 gal. per tap, but more importantly, the sugar content in the sap dropped to 1.4 % ( compared to ave. of 2.4 % ). This translates to over 60 gal. of sap to make a single gal. of syrup. This yield is too low to justify the time and wood necessary to continue on.We completed the day with 30 gal. of syrup. This closes out the production phase for us and ushers in the enjoyment phase for you. We only have a limited amount of Grade B syrup. If this is your preference, please order early to avoid disappointment.**** Email your preference for Grade B, available in quarts or gallons.
