Beginner Maple and Reverse Osmosis Program

  • Tuesday, September 17, 2019, 6:00 PM - 8:30 PM

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 backyard hobbyist. Topics include: why make maple syrup, tree identification, tapping, sap collection, taphole sanitation, 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 the use of smaller scale reverse osmosis units for syrup production. Reverse osmosis is a process to remove more of the water content of the sap before it is boiled down, thus reducing boiling time significantly.Start now to plan for next year’s sap season!
