Logistics and Layout of the Sugarbush – October 15, 2016
Please join the Upper Kennebec Valley chapter of the Small Woodland Owners Association of Maine for an informative session with maple syrup producer, State Representative, Tree Farmer and SWOAM member Russell Black at his Farm, Black Acres in Wilton on Saturday, October 15th. Russell and a representative from CDL Maine, a new distributer in Wilton will collaborate for a tour of Russell’s sugarbush and tubing layout. Russell will go into the finer points of the use of 3/16″ tubing for the small to large producer. This is a great workshop for the woodland owner thinking of getting into syrup production, or for more seasoned folks who might see ways to improve their existing operation. This session is co-sponsored by the Maine Maple Producers Association. The session will be from 9 a.m. to noon, is free and open to anyone. Please dress for outside weather and meet at Russell’s sugar shack at 123 Black Road, which is off of Munson Road, which is off of US Route 2 in Wilton. There is no need to pre-register. For more information contact Patty Cormier at 592-2238, or patty.cormier@maine.gov.
