We have some neighbors (about a mile away) who live on a wooded lot (approximately 9 acres) with lots of maple trees.  They have attended our Maple Open House/Farm Tour in the past and have offered to let us tap their trees.

So this year we took them up on it!  Back in the summer, we walked through the woods to get a feel for how many maple trees there are in that woods and decided it was definitely worth the investment.  We signed a contract - known as a Sugarbush Lease - and installed the tubing lines and vacuum system.  This addition will put us well over 1000 taps!!

Yes, it IS a LOT of work!
