We are so thankful for our loyal base of Ohio State maple syrup fans. In fact, our repeat customers do such a good job of cleaning out each new inventory release, that there is very little leftover to share with potential new customers. This year, 80% of our released stock sold within 2 weeks including every single one of our special 5-year commemorative glass etched bottles.
We do have some OSU maple syrup left. If you are interested, please visit the OSU Maple Store through the Woodland Stewards website and purchase quarts for pick-up (either on Columbus or Mansfield campus) or doorstep delivery. Time is of the essence as we are down to just 75 or so jugs remaining. The proceeds from syrup continue to support excellent hands-on, field-based student internships in the sugarbush and in the broader Ecolab at Ohio State Mansfield. Thanks!
Thomas deHaas wrote up this post earlier in 2022 about the Kelleys Island sugaring operation – I think you’ll find it interesting!
The Ohio State Maple Store is back in stock. Our 2022 syrup inventory has officially hit the shelves, and you can place your order here.
Glass half pints and jug pints, quarts, and half gallons are available. Orders can be shipped to your door (extra fee) or picked up at the Franklin County Extension Office off Kenny Road in Columbus or from Riedl Hall on Ohio State Mansfield campus in Richland County.
We are so appreciative of the support everyone has shown in purchasing syrup. Thanks to your purchases, we have employed 5 different students working field-based experiential jobs just this calendar year alone. One full-time student and 2 part-timers during our 2022 maple research season, and 2 additional full-time positions that just recently completed summer fellowships.
We are excited to have a new maple shop up and running on the Woodland Stewards website. The new shop gives us a few new features to track orders and supplies a bit better. The 2021 syrup run is all bottled and waiting on your orders as the Holiday season approaches. We have 1/2 pint glass bottles available in addition to pint, quart, half gallon, and gallon (gallons by request only) available in jugs.
I am happy to report that syrup sales placed 2 part-time students and a full-time recent graduate in the field throughout last winter’s sugaring season. From both a production standpoint (how the maple syrup is produced and hands-on learning of that process) and research standpoint (how to ask good research questions and how to set up experiments to get answers), each student had an incredible enriching experience thanks to your support of the program.
