Early Maple Syrup Season Story Includes Expert’s Comments

The Bangor Daily News interviewed University of Maine Cooperative Extension maple syrup expert Kathy Hopkins about the early start to this year’s maple syrup season. Hopkins said producers all over the state have started to tap trees. There is no downside to the early season, she added as long as temperatures don’t suddenly warm up for an extended period, which eventually affects the taste of the sap.
