Thomas deHaas wrote up this post earlier in 2022 about the Kelleys Island sugaring operation – I think you’ll find it interesting!

Ohio State Maple Syrup BACK IN STOCK
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.
New OSU Maple Syrup SHOP
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.
