John DeWine of Flying Mouse Farms is busy these days boiling down hundreds of gallons of sap from some 650 taps of the farm’s maple trees to make maple syrup. The process requires 40 gallons of sap for every one gallon of syrup produced. The cooking takes place in the “hot house” and is fueled by a constantly burning wood stove. Above, DeWine performs one last filtration, passing the syrup through layers of thick cloth to remove any last unwanted particles.
