Maple Syrup Information

What is Maple Syrup

Maple Syurp Logo

     Ohio on average is the 4th largest producer of maple syrup in the United States adding $5 million to Ohio's economy annually. In 1840 during the first ever Agricultural census conducted during the sixth United States census, Ohio was the largest producer of maple syrup and maple sugar.  Deforestation for lumber, farming land, charcoal, and the like directly impacted Ohio's  maple syrup production. 

OSU Maple Programs

      As a Land Grant University Ohio State University has a long tradition of working with Ohio's Maple Syrup Producers back to the early 19th century.
