    Default Who else makes maple syrup?

    I have a small maple syrup operation (300-500 taps) in NE Ohio. Seems like quite a few people in my area do the maple and beekeeping thing. Just wondered if anyone else on here in the northeast has a maple syrup operation.

    I got a small operation in Morris County, NJ.


    We run 30 buckets, of a rigged propane e-vap. I'm upgrading to a 2x4 this year.

    I run 225 taps in Hebron, New York
    All run right to the saphouse and am boiling on a 20 x 66 Darveau evaporator with a Marcland drawoff controlled by my own controller.

    sounds like a nice little set up.

    I'm thinking about running some gravity lines this next year from the drop lines to 55gal drums or something. This year was terriable for me. I was expecting about 10 gal. +/- and I barley made 5. I am slowly becomming obsessed with maple productuion in addtion to bees, and chickens, and hunting, and fishing, and gardening, and etc. story of my life.

    You have your own farm or do you tap sorrounding areas?

    All of mine are on my own property. Could have more but there is enough there to keep me busy when it is running.

    A Florida Boy is getting very hungry just thinking about maple syrup. Is the real stuff that much better? I may have to wait another twenty years for the good stuff to get here to find out.
