Maple season looking better this year


Maple farmers in New Hampshire say this season is looking better than last year’s. Weather conditions have been favorable. Robyn Pearl, publicist for the New Hampshire Maple Producers Association, told the Eagle-Tribune that it has been an average start to the season. Temperatures are cooperating. ‘‘We are very optimistic about a nice, long maple season this year,’’ said Brad Presby, owner of Presby’s Maple Farm in Bethlehem and promotions director for the maple association. Pearl said the state produced about 90,000 gallons of syrup last year, less than in 2011, when the state’s producers made 125,000 gallons.
