Fresh maple syrup back on tap

CASHTON, Wis. (WKBT) – A local business is finding themselves in a sticky situation, and they like it.

Staff from B&E’s Trees near Cashton are busy preparing for maple syrup season, and the weather is in their favor.

The early spring is giving them a head start with tapping.

To celebrate the start of the season the business is hosting an open house on March 21st.

There will be tours of the woods and sugar house all afternoon.

It takes a lot of work, but there’s nothing quite like fresh syrup.

“The flavor, the smell of cooking maple syrup, the smell in the sugar house. You can’t catch that on camera,” said co-owner Bree Breckel.

It takes between 40 and 50 gallons of sap to make one gallon of syrup.

The open house is at 30904 Rognstad Ridge Road in Cashton.

They are serving maple Stouts, maple cocktails, and chili.
