Making Syrup

Once the sap is collected from the trees on our mountain, it takes about 40 gallons of sap to produce 1 gallon of maple syrup, through a multi-faceted and intensive process of boiling with our wood-fired arch. On Buck Mountain, trees are tapped by the first full moon in February and sugaring season is finished by mid-April, with the weather deciding how much sap will run.  Syrup is truly a gift from the trees, and a precious commodity.
