V-that is a serious number of sap containers to get one of syrup.But makes one value the final product a little more. B

Hi Velma - I think I like your approach better - much more direct and satisfying! Still it's pretty cool to have maple syrup on tap, literally. we buy ours in bottles you guys package and send over here!

when we first moved here there were the rusty remains of a sugar house in the woods, long rusted to nothing now. rural archaeology. i'm glad you know maple syrup!

Yeah, those tubes are weird to me...I know it is more convenient but...and then you can't ride your horse through either! xo

Oh no, another childhood illusion crushed. But I still love the stuff.

cait and alice, i comfort myself with knowing that MY gallon of syrup came out of MY trees and NOT into plastic tubes!
