    Default NY Syrup Production and Distribution Questions?

    Hi everyone,

    My name is Kevin Keefe, I am the president of a student run club at Alfred University called the Forest People. We built a sugar shack this year to allow the club to produce maple syrup; it's been played around with for a few years and we wanted to solidify the process in the club. I have been notified by the university that, we (the club) are allowed to sell the syrup to gain funding to supplement the process/ club. I was wondering if anyone knows the restrictions/ regulations for producing and selling maple syrup in the state of New York. We are a non-for profit club and will not be using the money as a form of "personal income," just as a "fundraiser" for the club. Any information on the topic would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.


    AU Forest People President,
    Kevin Keefe

    Oh, how wonderful that there are young people who still want to learn and do some hard work!! YEAH for all of you! Yes, the NYSMA with Helen is wonderful, she is beyond helpful! Also the Dept. of Ag. PS one of my son-in-laws attended Alfred. Best of luck and have a great time!
