Sap to syrup


Mike Ullery | Daily Call Upper Valley Career Center Environmental Occupations instructors Jim Metz and Michaella Quinter, left, empty boiling sap from the cooker as students Sam Kirkpatrick, Walker Branson, and Chase Gambill tend to the fire. Kirkpatrick is a student from Troy Christian, while both Branson and Gambill are from Bradford. Students have collected some 320 gallons so far and will continue to collect sap, which is turned into maple syrup for the next several weeks. It takes 45 gallons of raw tree sap to produce one gallon of maple syrup.


Haley Hamblin of Sidney works with Upper Valley Career Center Environmental Occupations instructor Jim Metz to pour boiling sap into a container at the school on Wednesday. The sap will soon be turned into maple syrup.
