Maple Syrup Program
On average, maple syrup adds $5 million to Ohio's economy annually. In 1840, during the first 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.
