We cooked the final gallons and finished at 2 am Tuesday. I could have made a couple more gallons but I was played out and the syrup was not the best. Reports were that the season was above average, had tough time filtering, high sugar contents, 3.6 and up and everyone was wore out by the length of the season, which was over 4 weeks. We are washing all buckets tomorrow, about 2600 of them, sounds ominous, but we have lots of youth and families and it will take no longer than 2 hours.
Syrup prices have not been announced, however I don’t expect them to go up considering the size of the crop this year. If syrup goes below $2.00 per pound which is what is was at the start of the season, my sap buy price will be $.12 per point or less.
It sure is nice to have warmer weather and on to spring!!!!
