Maple Mountain New York, LLC.
Here are some of our favorites:
- National Maple Syrup Day is December 17th
- Sap from the beginning of maple season is as clear as water
- Each tap can yield about 10 gallons of sap per season, producing about one quart of syrup
- Maple season can last for about 8 to 10 weeks giving us a limited time to produce the liquid gold goodness
- Tapping only takes about 10% of a tree's total sap each season
- Maple Syrup is only commercially produced in the northeast corner of North America
- Syrup flavors and nutrients vary based on the soil a maple tree grows in, tree genetics, weather during the season, processing technique, and when sap is collected
- There are different species of maple trees, Sugar Maples (Acer saccharum) are one of the maple trees with high sugar content
- The sugar maple became the official state tree to the great state of New York in 1956
