North American Maple Syrup Producers' Manual
This 3rd edition was published in 2022 and produced by the University of Vermont in cooperation with the North American Maple Syrup Council.
Since 1958 the North American Maple Syrup Producers Manual has served as a basic reference source for the production of pure maple products. This 2022 edition provides up-to-date, science-based information and recommendations relating to all aspects of the industry. The guidelines presented will help users ranging from the hobby and beginning producer level to those well-established in the industry. In addition, the information herein will benefit foresters, land managers, Extension and outreach personnel, and others aiming to provide assistance to those in the maple industry. Numerous photographs, tables, a glossary and hyperlinks to selected source materials are included.
Efficiency Vermont works with partners to help our state transition to more affordable, low carbon energy use through education, incentives, and support for our clean energy workforce. As the nation’s first Energy Efficiency Utility, Efficiency Vermont has helped Vermont avoid over 13.2 million metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions and has received the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s ENERGY STAR program Partner of the Year – Sustained Excellence award for the last seven consecutive years. Boiling down 43 gallons of sap to make one gallon of maple syrup takes a lot of fuel and time. A number of technologies exist, however, to reduce the energy needed to produce syrup—by reducing boiling time and using less fuel oil or cordwood. Learn more at www.efficiencyvermont.com/maple.
