From buying equipment to tapping your own trees to boiling the sap, this is the classic, best-selling guide to making maple syrup
This little book swept maple sugarin’ buffs off their feet when it first appeared and is still the top-selling guide to the craft after over 40 years in print. Backyard Sugarin’ tells you how you can make maple syrup right in your own backyard without having to build a sap house or buy buckets, holding tanks, evaporators, and other expensive paraphernalia.
This new edition also features a foreword by maple expert Michael Farrell, author of The Sugarmaker’s Companion, who provides a contemporary look back at the old-school techniques presented in this book. With detailed “how-to” information and tips from sugarers across the country, this is the only maple sugaring guide you’ll ever need.
