Noce looking syrup there. We still have the final boil to do on two batches. Pulled out taps last Friday. Thats two weeks earlier than last year. Our total for the year should be around 17 gallons.
My dad just north of mille lacs finely got his taps in the trees the end of last week. He has been fighting with to much snow in the woods to get to the trees. Sure hope their temps hold for a while to get a decent season.
We pulled our taps Friday as well in the Cambridge area. We ended up with as much syrup this last week as we did the first 2 weeks. the weather was great for it!
Looks and sounds great. I’d like to get into this but I don’t have any maple tree on my property. What size tree is best if I were to start a search on public land . Bigger is better or would something like four or five inch diameter regrowth work. Thanks
Rule of thumb is a 10″ diameter tree or bigger. Extra large trees we’ll put 2 or even 3 taps on one tree.
