The news that maple is now included in the USDA’s list of crops eligible for Coronavirus Food Assistance Program relief is BIG! For more details, you can click back to this recent post by Les Ober.
On September 1 at 7 PM, make plans to attend a webinar hosted by Ohio State University, Future Generations University (WV), and Penn State that breaks down CFAP for maple producers. The webinar grows out of the region’s tri-state ACER collaborative. Specific topics include how to determine your operation’s eligibility for CFAP, how to fill out the CFAP application, and other practical help to take advantage of the relief program. Cindy Martel and Les Ober will be the speakers.
Our team is proud that this hyper-relevant topic will open a brand new series of free webinars for maple producers. The series will highlight diverse topics that enhance your maple business ranging from marketing and taxes to tree science and woodlot management. The series is called Out of the Woods: Enriching Your Maple Business.
