New shipping method added

Dave Klish

We added an additional shipping option. I was talking with a fellow syrup maker and he said he uses a regional box for more local shipping. I tested it out with a half gal of syrup and just threw in 2 different zip codes. As you know, I am in central NY, I looked up the price of shipping it to Georgia, and one in California. The one in Georgia priced at about $5 less than a medium flat rate box, but the one to California was about $4.50 more than the medium flat rate box. Thus, this regional box will be a good choice for those in some cases but not for others who are farther away. Check it out, My program should use the lowest cost method, but verify the choice.

This new shipping option is the USPS regional Box B. Again, it will only help those who are closer to my location.

Increased online sales

Dave Klish

We have been experiencing greatly increased online sales since mid February but have had no problem keeping up with the demand. Our inventory remains good, but if you want anything that says it is not in stock in either Amber, Dark or either of the bourbon barrel aged syrups please send me an email to: dave@cnymaple.com and I will update that inventory. While the program automatically updates inventory as orders are filled, I sometimes fill more of a product from a Stainless Steel barrel or just restock my storage racks for shipments and forget to add that count into the store inventory.

I try to check orders at 7-7:30 pm (EDT) daily and process all new orders. I don’t do orders received after 7:00 pm until the following evening. The USPS does not allow me to schedule pickups for the same day, their cut off is something like 2:00 a.m. central time. Thus the orders I process at 7:00-7:30 each evening are shipped out by USPS the following day.

Thank you for your business.

We are well

Dave Klish

We closed the sugarhouse to visitors at the beginning of the season, but we continue to make maple syrup. We are still shipping and will as long as we remain healthy and the post office continues to pick up out going shipments from my dock.

I hope all of my customers get thru this trying time. We are self quarantined as a preventive measure and have been since before the first case of Covid 19 was diagnosed in the U.S. May all of you maintain the necessary “social distancing” needed to remain healthy.

God Bless and we will get thru this.
