Maple Syrup Survey Looks To Gauge This Year's Crop

Apr 18, 2016

  The US Department of Agriculture is asking maple producers to weigh in on this year's syrup crop. 

The 2016 Maple Syrup Survey runs through May 15th.

It will ask over 2,100 syrup producers in the Northeast about the number of taps, total syrup produced and price information.

Last year New Hampshire produced 154,000 gallons of syrup, up from 2014 despite a slightly shorter season.

The New Hampshire Maple Producers Association says maple sugaring brings in an estimated $25 million in annual revenue for the state's 800 producers.

Overall syrup production in the Northeast totaled 2.96 million gallons for 2015, up 7 percent from the year before.
