Join the Southern Tier chapter of the NY Forest Owners Association, in partnership with Cornell Cooperative Extension of Broome County, for a presentation by Aaron Wightman, Co-Director for the NYS Maple Program, and Director of the Arnot Forest Maple Research Facility, on maple syrup production for beginners. We’ll cover a variety of aspects of maple syrup production including: why make maple syrup, , tapping, sap collection and handling, boiling, finishing and grading syrup. We will also discuss other tree species which can be tapped to make syrup outside of hard maple trees. This workshop is aimed at the small or beginning maple producer and would be useful to the homeowner looking to tap a few trees in the backyard or someone wanting to start small-scale commercial maple production. This workshop will take place inside the Agricultural Development Center at Cornell Cooperative Extension of Broome County. There is no cost to attend, but you must pre-register in order to ensure enough materials will be available. You can register here. All attendees will receive a Maple Syrup for Beginners notebook courtesy of the Cornell Maple Program. This workshop is being conducted concurrent to a NYFOA meeting so those interested in learning more about NYFOA are invited to join at starting at 6pm to meet the members and learn more about the organization. Questions can be directed to Laura Biasillo, Agricultural Economic Development Specialist,
