Since the time of native people living in the Adirondacks, we have all enjoyed maple syrup. While you may have visited a local sugar house (the building where maple syrup is made) you've probably left wondered, "Is this something that I could do in my own backyard?" This workshop is just what you want. Here you will learn what it takes to make your own maple syrup. What kinds of trees you can use, how to safely tap a tree without harming it, what are the costs involved, when is the best time to tap the trees, and so much more. Mark will answer these questions and help you gain the basics for your own backyard sugaring adventure. Learn safe tapping, how to collect sap, how much you need, and how to turn the sap into syrup. At the conclusion of the workshop we will hopefully be able to visit a medium size local sugaring operation to learn more. So, whether you want to make one bottle for your pancakes, or you are thinking of maybe starting a new hobby, you are sure to learn what it takes for 'sweet success'.
