Maple Syrup Season Off to Slow Start Due To Bitter Temperatures
Maple producers across New York are planning open houses the last two weekends in March, but so far the season is off to a slow start because of frigid weather.
 
The best weather for sap is daytime temperatures in the low 40s and nighttime lows in the 20s. This winter has been so cold that many producers say they haven’t been able to get any sap yet.
 
2013 was a banner year for Maple Producers; New York State produced 574 thousand gallons of syrup last year, in 2012 it was 360 thousand gallons. New York is the second largest maple state behind Vermont.
