Maple Syrup Season Not the Best for Holden Producer
Maple syrup season is over in many parts of Maine. Timothy Littlefield with Lucerne Maple Products says his season wasn’t great. He produced about 151 gallons and says he should have had somewhere between 300 and 350 gallons. Even though his season wasn’t as sweet as he wanted, others did pretty well. ” As close as the next person is to me, is probably 30 to 35 miles as the crow flies and their season was a lot better than mine,” said Littlefield. The ideal weather for maple syrup production is night’s in the mid-20′s and days in the low-40′s. In Canada and parts of northwest Maine, maple syrup season is just beginning.
