Our hope is that Ohio maple producers use this as a landing page to become a more active, engaged, and knowledgeable member of the maple community. Drop in regularly to see what upcoming meetings and webinars, resources and presentations are on the horizon.
Join Les Ober and Mike Rechlin for an in-person maple syrup grading and quality control workshop on June 11, 2021. The workshop is from 4:30 to 7:00 pm in the Back Bay Room of Garrett College Career Technology Training Center over in Accident, Maryland. While Maryland sounds like a long drive from Ohio, the workshop is only a couple hours from producers along the eastern edge of Ohio. Enjoy a presentation on the theory and science behind making quality syrup followed by a hands-on session on grading and tasting maple syrup. The main program will be followed by an optional hour of dinner, a syrup competition, and Q&A session. Come early and get your hydrometer calibrated by Mike Lynch. Doors open at 4:00 pm. Register here!
