Product Demo: The Lively family demos their EcoVap electric evaporator

May 6, 20209

Today we visit with Eric Lively and brother Joe Lively at Sunrise Farm in Colrain, Mass. as they demonstrate their extremely efficient EcoVap electric evaporator, made by Dominion & Grimm. “We used only $4 in fuel to make 22 gallons,” Lively said. He said the unconventional rig, which captures steam and recirculates it, raised a few eyebrows with other sugarmakers in this traditional sugaring area in the Berkshires. “Some of the neighbors were giving us funny looks,” Lively said. "When we first got it, I wondered ‘What have we gotten ourselves into?’ Now I wish we’d gotten it sooner.”
