Just Released: The Sugarmaker's Companion

RAFFL

The Sugarmaker's Companion, written by Michael Farrell, contains extensive information on how to develop an efficient, profitable, and enjoyable sugaring operation. Michael 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.

"The Sugarmaker's Companion is a delightful read. For the family with access to a few trees, or the larger sugarbush owner, the information provided in this book will be an affirmation of their efforts. The book delves into not only the maple harvest, but also many of our lesser-known tree resources, as well as fascinating facts like the nutritional benefits of maple sap. The message is clear. To preserve our forests we must enjoy them... yummy!"
—B. Keith Harris, B.Sc., owner/CEO, Troll Bridge Creek Inc.
