TREE TAP­PING

The Oneida Daily Dispatch (Oneida, NY) - - Community -

Mem­bers of the V.V.S. FFA were busy tap­ping trees this past week in an­tic­i­pa­tion of the up­com­ing maple sea­son. FFA trea­surer Danann Lohr uses a pre­ci­sion tap­per to drill a fresh hole into a maple tree as FFA pres­i­dent Jonathan Perry pre­pares the spout and dropline. The FFA taps more than 2,000trees and pro­cesses the maple sap into syrup at the school’s fa­cil­ity. V.V.S. FFA hosts Maple Week­end Open House the last two week­ends in March with a pan­cake break­fast and tours of the sugar bush and maple sap house. All pro­ceeds from the maple op­er­a­tion and break­fast sup­port stu­dent ac­tiv­i­ties.
