Sugaring Series 5
Now we've moved to a different sugaring operation. This is Jon and Tammy Sargent's sugarhouse in Guilford, Vermont. They have an entire building devoted to making maple syrup. The evaporator fills about 70 percent of the floor space. The Sargents use tubing to collect their sap instead of buckets and they produce enough of the delectable liquid sunshine to sell internationally.
