Well here we are again. 2015's summer had perfect conditions for the apple, sugar
trees to produce the starch they need for a great crop. January had some above normal
temps that gave some producers a early start. We chose to hold off on tapping during
the warmer temps. We chose to tap in early Feb and we are running 2655 taps this year.
Last year we ran 2525 taps. We had a banner year last year. Last year was the latest
we ever had boiled. April 14th. As always we are hoping for another great
season for every sugar maker big or small. I feel the world market is still very strong.
