Today we went on the maple farm tour put on by our local high school and their FFA.  I think the kids do a really a good job.  They have a modern syrup production facility, but also have a demonstration cauldron.  Did you know that they used to hang pork fat over the syrup?  The fat dripped into the syrup and kept the foam down.
