A Sweet Season for Maple Syrup Production in New York State

The Buzz: Business News, Albany Times Union - June 9, 2011

New York’s maple trees were particularly productive this past spring, producing the most maple syrup since 1947, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Production was also up 81 percent from last year, with the state producing 564,000 gallons of syrup from 2.01 million taps.

Only Vermont produced more syrup, the Agriculture Department reported.

Weather was generally favorable, with below-freezing nights and above-freezing days resulting in a long season for production. Nationally, maple syrup production totaled 2.79 million gallons, up 43 percent from year-earlier levels.
