Default New Facility Started

So we went and did something crazy. We broke ground our what is to be our new 40x72 maple facility. Within the footprint we are building a new badly needed 20c confections kitchen which will be 24x40. On the back side of the kitchen I'm building a 10x12 lean to which will become our walk in cooler.
We also purchased a very nice used D&G 3x10 oil fired evaporator with pre heater, front and rear air injection, front pan washer for the cross flow pans, internal rear pan washer with pump and wash tank, autodraw and drawoff tank.
We decided we wanted to consolidate some tanks, so we purchased a 6x6x20' lapierre tank for raw sap, and are upgrading the 600 gph ro to a 1200 gph ro.
This should be most definitely an adventure!!
