MCFC CSA 2016: Maple syrup tasting Oct 14

Last year the USDA revised Maple Syrup grades. Grades B and C were replaced with four levels of Grade A. We have 3 levels available to us from our local farm partners:

Grade A Amber
Grade A Dark
Grade A Very Dark

What is the difference in these three grades?
A local farmer I spoke to once exclaimed that the closer to the city one lives, the darker the syrup grade they crave, and New Yorkers crave a very dark maple syrup taste.

Come taste all three to see what grade is your favorite on Friday October 14 when you pick up your CSA share.
Once you choose your favorite, preorder syrup at delivery Friday October 28 2016.
