Our unseasonably cold weather has not given us much sap over the last 2 weeks.We are entering a period of predicted 60s and 70s which if it lingers all week as predicted will likely end our season👎. However yesterday, we transitioned from 20s at night to 40s over by 10 am. This unleashed a sap flow greater than any we’ve seen in 30 yrs! We had sap flow over 200 gal. per hour for 30 hrs! We are making Amber Rich syrup with fantastic maple flavor! This photo is one taken by my daughter Erica who was responsible for pumping the sap to the Sugarhouse.
