Anyone with an interest, a little knowledge and the proper equipment can try their hand at maple syrup production, assuming they live in a maple syrup-producing region such as the northeastern United States or eastern Canada. Maple syrup is considered one of the oldest natural food products in North America, dating back to the Native Americans!
Information on producing maple syrup is available through organizations such as the The New York State Maple Producer’s Association or your local Cornell Cooperative Extension.
