I bottle my maple syrup in a number of different sized bottles; 250mL, 500mL, 1L, 1.89L. As well as maple syrup I make maple butter, maple fudge, and a very decadent maple pie (think mapley butter tart). In addition to maple syrup, next year I will start harvesting honey from my bees. Since my colonies started so small, as nucleus colonies, all of the honey my bees produce this year will be food for them for the upcoming winter – there will be no surplus. For next year I’ve been told to expect to get anywhere 50-100 lbs of surplus honey per hive. Multiply that by 8 hives and I’m going to be swimming in it. I think that’s when I’ll hang out my shingle and start selling honey.
