I have been in the woods daily getting ready for tapping. It's easy getting around the woods right now with the low snow depth. Good time to cover the entire 120 acres. Our plan is to start tapping the last week in January which will finnish us up probably the first or second week in febuary. There usually is a thaw sometime around the second or third week in Febuary. This is the start to the sugaring season for us. Then it freezes up for a time, which gives us time to get things in order for the inevitable rush that is Maple Sugaring!. The entire season last until the second or third week in April.
