Yes to selling the syrup. We sell retail, and wholesale to a couple of mom&pop stores. We will ship also. The price is not set yet this year.
Back when we did this in earnest, we hung 3000plus buckets. It's more of a hobby thing now with only 1000 buckets. There was a 5 year gap with no production due to my dad's health, He was the driving force to make syrup for 70 years. Now a couple of cousins have taken an intrest, and the uncles don't know how to take it easy, and I am retired and bored this time of year, so last year and now this, we are back at it.
If we hadn't have stopped for those 5 years, this 40A sugarbush would have produced Maple Syrup for 104 years continuously by a member of our family. We lost Grandpa in 1972 who started the operation, and Dad died last March shortley after we were able to get him up there for a few hrs. to see the evaporators back up and running. This is the last pic taken of dad and his last outing before his death only a bit over a week later. He was pushing 92. There are 4 generations of our family in the pic.
