The spring 2017 Maple Syrup season ended quietly, just as it began. Many areas did not have a good sap flow, so a vacuum system really helped maintain the flow.
Maple Hollow’s Open House Sale and Swap Meet will be Friday and Saturday, May 5th and 6th. John Kuhns from Sunrise Metals will have a morning seminar at 9:30 on “Technology of Boiling”. Dr. Gary Graham from the Ohio Extension Office will have afternoon seminars at 1:30 on “Timing of Tapping”, “Production”, and “Maple Nuggets”. He will also be checking syrup hydrometers for accuracy during this event.
There will be a Swap Meet for used equipment and maple related crafts on Friday and Saturday. Please call and register if you will be bringing items to the free Swap Meet.
