2:06 “if the diameter’s over 10 inches, that’s a good indicator that you can tap it.” I’m with you sis...

You can tell it's a maple because of the way it is.

I've got no complains regarding to the content of the video, I love Brad's content but FFS how can you be so terrible at syncing audio volume levels? I couln't hear any of the talking so I had to turn up the volume, then the intro music blew a hole into the wall. Now I'm too afraid watch this video until I'm with headphones.

Warning for those who watch this in the future. The intro jingle is FAR louder than their voices.

This is nostalgic for me, my great uncle owned a sugarwood with the metal buckets and all of that. We would go there in the spring to help him collect them all. Whole family would show and all the cousins would ride on the tractor and trailer and pick up the buckets to dump into this big trailer vat that he would bring around to the barn where he had his boilers set up. Huge maple shack meal for everyone made by his wife. Awesome times.

This was awesome, Brad is good with everyone❣️ Chrissy and her boyfriend, so generous, to share what they know. Who knew, hobby maple tapping is possible, as long as you have at least one tree on your property🌳🍁🍯😋

Brad needs a Netflix show where he travels and meets other chefs/farmers/ranchers and then cooks a meal with them.

This was a really cool episode but the audio was comically bad. I had to keep adjusting the volume because one moment I couldn't hear Chrissy at all and next moment Brad's voice nearly blows out my speakers. And don't even get me started on the intro..
