Vermont Evaporator Company
The Vermont Evaporator Company’s Sapling is designed for the backyard sugaring enthusiast with 5 to 50+ taps. The Sapling does not require a sugar house, and, because it comes standard with grill grates, converts to a wood-fired grill year-round.
Although the Sapling is simply designed, it still has the advanced features of more expensive evaporators. The Sapling is a continuous-flow evaporator, meaning that sap is channeled around the pan using dividers via a pressure gradient. This configuration allows syrup to be drawn off and sap to be added without emptying the pan. The continuous flow is more efficient than pre-existing DIY methods, which means more (and lighter!) syrup on more pancakes in less time. (Distribution Territory: Québec)
