I have rental property and there was a house fire about two years ago from a wood stove. The insurance company will no longer allow the home to be heated by wood while it is a rental. Not the same situation, but a similar story.

Set up an evaporator outside. It was done that way for a long time...

Why not? People cook outside and use woodfires outdoors in rentals all over the state...people use to just use big kettles over an open fire to make syrup, nothing but a lengthy cookout...

If it's really that restrictive I'd suggest buying your own place and being done with that renting nonsense...

Contact the state insurance commissioner and the local newspaper. Since Vermont is famous for making maple syrup, a LOT of people will frown on this. BTW, what insurance company and agent, so everyone can AVOID DOING BUSINESS WITH THEM?
