Product Description

The Sugarmaker’s Companion is the first guide of its kind addressing the small- and large-scale syrup producer seeking to make a profitable business from maple, birch, and walnut sap. This comprehensive work incorporates valuable information on ecological forest management, value-added products, and the most up-to-date techniques on sap collection and processing. It is, most importantly, a guide to an integrated sugaring operation, interconnected to the whole-farm system, woodland, and community. Farrell documents the untapped potential of American forests and shows how sugaring can turn a substantial profit for farmers while providing tremendous enjoyment and satisfaction. 

Michael Farrell, sugarmaker and director of the Uihlein Forest at Cornell University, offers information on setting up and maintaining a viable sugaring business by incorporating the wisdom of traditional sugarmaking with the value of modern technology (such as reverse-osmosis machines and vacuum tubing). He gives a balanced view of the industry while offering a realistic picture of how modern technology can be beneficial, from both an economic and an environmental perspective. Within these pages, readers will find if syrup production is right for them (and on what scale), determine how to find trees for tapping, learn the essentials of sap collection, the art and science of sugarmaking, and how to build community through syrup production. 

There are many more unique aspects to this book that set it apart from anything else on the market, including:

•    A focus on maple as a local, sustainably produced and healthy alternative to corn syrup and other highly processed and artificial sweeteners;
•    The health benefits of sap and syrup in North America and throughout the world;
•    Attention to the questions of organic certification, sugarhouse registration, and the new international grading system;
•    Enhancing diversity in the sugarbush and interplanting understory crops for value-added products (ginseng, goldenseal, and mushrooms, specifically);
•    An economic analysis of utilizing maple trees for syrup or sawtimber production and the market opportunities for taphole maple lumber;
•    The value of sap as a healthful and profitable energy drink;
•    Detailed analyses on the economics of buying and selling sap;
•    Lots of great information on marketing to create a profitable business model (based on scale, interest, and access), and more. . . .

Applicable for a wide range of climates and regions, this book is sure to change the conversation around syrup production and prove invaluable for both home-scale and commercial sugarmakers alike.

Stanford Cardinal Basketball: Failed Comeback attempt against Colorado

Like Friday against Utah, the Cardinal couldn't connect from behind the arc (4 of 17 on 3s Friday and 3 of 15 Sunday night). Like Friday, the Cardinal trailed from the opening tip but mounted a huge second-half comeback -- this time, from 16 points down -- thanks to a swarming defense that limited Colorado to 19 second-half points. Down by one with 37 seconds left, Stanford trusted its defense, chose not to foul, and ultimately forced Josh Scott , CU's bruiser down low, to heave a three with 11 seconds left (This is good). He missed, and Rosco Allen chased down the rebound but stepped out of bounds in doing so, and the Buffs kept the ball (This is good but unlucky). Allenâthen the angriest man in Silicon Valley, like a quarterback going for the hard tackle after throwing a bad interceptionâstripped the inbounds pass, found Marcus Allen with 6 seconds left, who then dribbled down the clock only to launch a 40...
