We wanted to acknowledge the passing of Richard Finzer, author of Maple on Tap. Richard was always one to keep us sharp and on our toes, and we enjoyed working with him as an author and truly master maple farmer. Our condolences go out to his family and those who loved his book.
Maple on Tap
Richard Finzer was a Blue Ribbon-winning maple syrup producer with 20 years of experience. His book, Maple on Tap, offers advice, shortcuts and tricks that will save you from making rookie mistakes, save you money by telling which equipment you really need and save you valuable time during the boiling-down process.
Maple on Tap includes step-by-step instructions for all sugaring activities from tapping to bottling, as age-old skills are enhanced with modern technology. Included are beautiful color photographs clearly demonstrating the process — further lifting the veil of mystery on this unique North American pursuit.
