Maple Facts

  • img_6679Did you know that it takes 40 gallons of sap to make 1 gallon of syrup?
  • Warm days and below freezing nights – sap is running right out of trees!
  • How many taps can you put in a tree that is 18 inches in diameter? You can put 1-2.  Every 8 inches the tree grows you can put another tap!
  • In sap there is only 3-5 % sugar and in syrup there is  67% sugar and that means that syrup is 2/3 sugar! Yes there is a lot of sugar in syrup but is it really yummy.
