Bigleaf Maple Syrup Webinar

Introduction to Bigleaf Maple Sugaring
Did you know you can make maple syrup from our native bigleaf maple? Bigleaf maple syrup is delicious with a unique flavor that is arguably better than the syrup produced from sugar maples in the northeast. Hobbyists have been producing bigleaf maple syrup for years for personal enjoyment, and this high-value syrup is just starting to be produced commercially to meet demand from consumers, including high-end restaurants.
In this introductory webinar for beginners, we will explain the basics of bigleaf maple syrup production at the hobbyist scale, including equipment needed, weather and site conditions, tapping and sap collection, and boiling off the water and finishing the syrup.
