I don't ever remember needing a 3pt mower to tap trees!!, but you got a very nice 430 there. We have been working this past week to get the evaporators ready-- cleaning pans, setting the smoke stackes up, and sodering one leaky drop flue pan on the old 6x24 Grimm evaporator.Plan on hanging about 1200 buckets, starting Monday.

With 1200 taps, I am surprised you are not using a vacum system instead of buckets. Most all syrup operations here have gone to vacum/pipeline systems and the buckets are only used to demonstrate the "old way" near the sugar shack.

This is a 100 + year old sugarbush on dead flat limestone bed rock, covering 65 Acers. Tubing not practical. Our family produced syrup for 97 yrs. continiously until 2005. In our hayday we put out 3500 buckets. My uncles are about 80 and I am 65, and we have a few cousins and nephews in their teens to 40 that are now taking an intrest and helping out. We're too old to invest in vacum systems and RO systems. We are just trying to carry on a family tradition, and financially justify our time and effort. I will post pics as the season progresses. These pics. are from a couple of weeks ago when we were cutting wood for the evaporators.

I'm not sure of the pic. you are refering to, but this 65A sugarbush was making syrup well over 100 years ago.Continuously for 96 years, until 2005, when Dad's health started failing.

Loren,

That is a great family tradition. I hope you can keep it going for many more years. When you mention limestone bed rock it really hits close to home here as we are on the other end of the Niagara escarpment. Don

You must be one tough bunch of people to actually saw and split that much firewood. I don't think I would last long enough to cut up one log.

I"ve seen several posts by you about the syrup process, and I"d like to learn a little more. Do you have anything on file, or any recommended sites, that you could link to/email me that could condense(pun intended) the process so a mere mortal like me could undrestand the basic how-to"s? Thanks, in advance!
