Got Maple? Whether you are looking to expand your current operation or start a new one this property is a great opportunity. The Sugar Bush was set up in the 2014 season so all of the equipment is modern. This is currently a sap gather operation complete with 12,000+ taps, 8360 & 1930 Gallon Stainless Tanks, Reverse Osmosis system, pumps and a 60KW diesel generator all housed in a modern 32 x 32 gathering building. The bush was updated in 2018 with a CDL remote monitoring system allowing you to monitor the vacuum in all of the lines from your smart phone drastically reducing the need to walk your lines looking for leaks. It will also ensure maximum production of the bush. The Pump House could be added onto for an evaporator or you can truck the sap concentrate as the current owners have done. Recent thinning in the woods has help release the maples and the land is a big bowl with East, South and west facing slopes which lends to long runs of sap. The bush is fairly young with 8-16" trees with a lot of young maple saplings growing in which means this bush has a bright future! Looking for more than a sugar bush, this property features frontage on Blake Pond, VASA trail access as well as an old camp with a wood stove, septic and dug well. This Maple Sugaring opportunity is priced to sell. Seller may consider a lease for $2.50 per tap per year.
