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.
As a Land Grant University, The Ohio State University has a long tradition of working with Ohio's Maple Syrup Producers back to the early 19th century. We invite you to explore our information and resources.
