Do you want to learn how to tap your trees for syrup? Tapping maple trees and making maple syrup is one of the most time honored rural winter traditions, resulting in a delicious product. This program will cover a variety of areas relevant to anyone fairly new to maple production, either the small commercial producer or back yard producer. Topics include: why make maple syrup, tree identification, tapping, sap collection, boiling, finishing and storing maple syrup, regulations and other resources for maple producers. The first half of this program will focus on these basics of maple production. The second half of the program will focus on little reverse osmosis units for syrup production, which is a way to remove more of the water content of the sap before it is boiled down.
