Maple School

Tuesday, January 14, 2020, 6:30pm-8:30pm

Join NYS Maple Specialist Steven Childs for our annual Maple School. This year’s topics include:
Maple Flavors: What creates the maple flavor, how can we enhance good flavor in our maple syrup and what situations make for poor and off flavors? These questions will be considered in this talk.
Tapping for Quality: What about tapping can lead to better quality and higher production. This session will look at time of tapping, where on the tree works best, what is the best pattern to use, what about spouts and drops, what about cleaning lines and other related questions.
Maple Energy: This session will take a quick view of the issues of energy efficiency, how much can various pieces of equipment save and how they can influence profit or costs.
