Sunday: Maple Syrup Producers Hope For Better Year
After a year in which maple syrup production fell by as much as half for some north country producers, there is hope this season will be better.
For one, Nadeen Lyndaker, of Lyndaker's Maple Orchard in Croghan, said Sunday that she's expecting a better season.
"Of course, everybody knows you want cold nights and warm days to keep that sap flowing," Lyndaker said.
Last season, the Lyndaker sugar bush only yielded enough sap for 175 gallons of maple syrup, about half an average year's production.
"The season didn't last very long. It was too warm, too fast and it ended quickly," Lyndaker said.
