The 2023 Mass Maple Producers Annual Meeting and Workshop will be held at Mohawk Trail Regional High School in Buckland on Saturday, January 14th, from 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.
The trade show of maple equipment vendors will begin at 9:00 a.m., along with coffee and snacks. The annual business meeting will begin at 10:45, and will include an election for new board members. Lunch from Cliff’s BBQ will begin at noon.
The after-lunch workshop, presented by Mark Isselhardt, Extension Maple Specialist at UVM, will be Ensuring Quality Syrup
The way you approach each step of the maple sugaring process can mean the difference between prize-winning syrup and off-flavored unsaleable products. This workshop will follow the process from the tree to the bottle, considering the steps that represent the best opportunities to enhance the quality of your syrup, as well as those that pose the greatest risk to your final product.
Registration for the meeting & workshop is $25. Register at Membership | Massachusetts Maple Producers Association (massmaple.org)
