Putting to bed 2017 sugaring season

Pulling spouts

As we worked to conclude our season pulling spouts from trees and washing the lines and such. The weather, uncooperative as it has been this spring, did not change it’s on-and-off performances. Is it winter or are we going to enjoy Bloodroots and Spring Beauties? Not so much, we got all flavors. But the final tap was pulled and the final line was washed Sunday evening April 30th and just in time to beat the next weather event – which fizzled – and black fly season.

Our season was good, yielding a quart of maple syrup per tap. We like that, and the syrup though not overly abundant like in years past, had spectacular flavors!

Here’s where to buy it: Wild Country Maple Syrup

 

Up Next:
May 20th, Minnesota Maple Syrup Producers Association (MMPSPA) meeting in Two Harbors, Minnesota

Enjoy!
