Finally Steam After Many Days of Teasing Temperatures.
It’s been over a week of freezing nights and daytime temperatures that crept up towards zero or barely above. As a result, we were getting very short and small dribbles of sap coming into the tank in the afternoons, but not quite enough to fire up the evaporator. Our sap tank has been building up a frozen sap-burg, as you can see! Today we finally had enough to boil down, and it sure was nice to smell that maple steam.
We remain open 1pm - 5pm daily, and still have lots of syrup that was made earlier this season available. Hopefully some warmer days are coming and we’ll get back into full swing soon!
