Maple Syrup


Maple syrup and maple sugar are among the oldest agricultural commodities produced in the United States. When European explorers first arrived on this continent, they found the Northeastern Native Americans managing maple groves, tapping the trees, gathering the sap, and consuming maple syrup and maple sugar. The newcomers soon learned these skills. Today, maple syrup is produced in fourteen northern states and four Canadian provinces. In the United States, Vermont, New York, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania have the largest maple syrup production.
