Enjoy the Natural Sweetness of Maine's Maple Syrup
Pure Maine maple syrup with a hint of the great north woods in it, has been brightening the flavor of fine, downeast food since long before the colonists arrived. Now, hundreds of years later, the quality is excellent, the degree of sweetness is fixed by law, and the uniquely delicious taste still varies as it always has. Sometimes the syrup is dark and rich, sometimes pale gold and delicate. It all depends on the soil and terrain, the wind and the weather, just like wine.
Fall is a great time of year to visit your local sugarhouse for delicious Maine Maple Syrup. Have you ever tried apple slices sprinkled with Pure Maple Sugar? How about a plate of waffles stacked high, covered in delicious maple syrup? What about a healthy breakfast of pancakes and syrup or some warm oatmeal drizzled with Maine Maple Syrup. The options are endless. So on those cool fall mornings, start your day off with a warm delicious breakfast. A yummy one at that.
Maple Syrup by the numbers- 2013
The USDA's National Agricultural Statistic Service has released its Maple Report for the 2013 season. This report also summarizes prices for the 2012 year. Maine moved into third place with a production of 450,000 gallons of syrup, up from 360,000 gallons in 2012. New York was second in production at 574,000 gallons and Vermont finished with the largest US production at 1,320,000 gallons. Overall, US production was up 70% over 2012, with a total of 3,250,000 gallons of syrup. Maine reported 1.5 million taps, the same as in 2012, but tap yield was up from .24 gallons to .30 gallons. In 2012, Maine had the lowest average gallon price in any state, due to 95% of our syrup sold as bulk. Maine had one of the highest retail gallon prices though, of $56.20, much higher than Vermont at $46.10. Maine syrup also brought the highest bulk price of any state at $2.90 per pound.

MMPA growing Strong
Since 2008, MMPA has seen a steady growth in its membership. We have gone from 108 sugarhouses statewide to around 185.

Everyone has taken an active role in making this organization be one that is of great benefit, not only to sugarhouses around the state but to the public. Tens of thousands of people visit our displays throughout the year and over a hundred thousand people will visit our website this year.
