I'm looking for food grade plastic drums. Anyone have any or know where I can get them? I'm going to be using them to collect maple sap to make syurp. Thanks in advance.

Most drums in barns came with herbicides in them. Not sure I'd touch any barrel from a barn.

yeah I would steer away from any drums that you dont know exactly where they came from. I used to get drums from my uncle who worked at hershey to use for wine making but have made heavy duty garbage cans out of them all by now since I've given up on the wine. If you know anyone who works at any type of food manufacturer they might have a lead for you that would be better suited for what you want/need

check pickle plants they will give you them. one of my family members made a filter for there backyard pond out of a 50gallon plastic pickle drum. alot of guys take them to make docks . all you have to do is ask.
