Tapping Crew 2014

Tapping day was Saturday, March 8th.  A bit later than usual this year due to cold weather.  The temperatures are still not cooperating as of March 13th.  We have yet to have a sap run for 2014.  We have so much snow on the ground that we were not able to tap 80 trees.  The tappers were in snowshoes last weekend to get it done.  Wild start to the year.  We are anxiously awaiting the first run.  There were a few drips on Monday as the weather was nice, but not enough to collect yet.  Friday looks promising – let’s hope!

Snowshoes were a big help to those who had them.  We had a small crew this year because we started early and the afternoon arrivals missed it.  Most of the day was spent in the house celebrating the day with the family and friends.

The girls were ready with their Adams Maple Mountain sweatshirts from 2013.
