Fox 29 News coverage

It was fun and rather exciting to talk about maple tapping on Fox 29 News 10 days or so ago. Please check out the coverage. When you are doing live media it's hard to say everything you'd like and in this interview, there were a few things I wish I had gotten across. 1. maple tapping is a lot of work and requires a lot of energy. Plus, the season is over and if you are interested in tapping maple trees next season please get in touch with me. It's important that you plan ahead and not tap trees without knowing what you are getting into, better yet it's better to do it as part of a community effort. 2. I wish I had expressed my thanks to Stockton University who supported the project with supplies, know-how, and a lot of boiling (which meant back-breaking wood splitting and more) of sap to make the syrup.
