Maple Syrup Tapping Day

February 10 @ 9:30 am - 12:30 pm

It all begins when the temperature rises above freezing during the day and falls below freezing at night. These conditions trigger the sap to begin to flow up the tree. A healthy tree can produce a gallon of sap a day on a good day. It takes 40 gallons to make 1 gallon of syrup. No experience is needed for tapping and all ages are welcome to come and help out. Tree tapping day is all outdoors and very weather dependent. Those interested in taking part in tapping day should watch for further announcements on Flanders’ website and Facebook page. (Snow date: Sunday, February 11, 12:30 & 2:00 PM)

On Tapping Day, please bring your own:  Cordless Drill – Twist Drill Bits (correct size is 7/16”) – Extra batteries (make sure they are fully charged!) – Hammer – Dress for the weather! (Warm layers and sturdy waterproof boots/shoes)
