2015 season

Posted by Turner Farms Maple Syrup on April 1, 2015 at 5:00 PM

One more month and the 2015 season will be a thing of the past. It's been a long long winter. One of those love hate seasons as far as sugaring goes. The weather has been a sugar maker's dream. Cold freezing nights. warmer days. And the chill is hanging on. The snow this year was over the knees in the woods for the entire tapping season. The sort of snow where snowshoes are a hinderance rather than help. Remarkably Carla was able to tap trees this year. A welcome change from the past two years where a shoulder injury kept her from helping. Paul worked tiredlessly, mostly by himself however on the days Trevor worked he  was an incredible asset. Paul picked up a bit of frost bite but that's a mild injury compared to seasons past. We bought new tracks for our four wheeler enabling us to move quickly through the snow to get to the tops of the mountains. In my opiniion some of the best money we've ever spent. We added a new Reverse Osmosis machine as the old one is simply wearing out. Happily we can say that the energy savings that the State of Massachuseets gambled on our grant towards a new evaporator was on the positive. We pulled off just about 300 gallons of sap an hour with the new set up and produced 30 gallons of syrup an hour.  Most all of the syrup again is of the medium grade. High quality and very tastey. Once the season is finished and cleaning up is over we will be in the final stage of wedding preperations for our daughter. We look foarward to celebrating with our new son in law, although he's been the sort of guy who we considered family from the day we met him.  It's a busy, busy 2015 and we look forward to all of our customers stopping in and sharing the ride of our lives. See you soon..... Carla
