    Deloitte Manager Finds Maple Syrup Life Sweeter: A Day's Work

    Lemay has more than 150 miles of the blue plastic crisscrossing her sugar bush, flowing from every maple into bigger tubing and finally into giant tanks inside the sugar house. A secondary set of vacuum tubing runs in tandem to help pull the sap from the trees, drastically increasing output.
