    Sorry I did not post the outcome of my original question. I did unregister @ the time I had posted my question. It was easy, I did get confirmation that I was unregistered and I have not been contacted by them since in any way. So I assume no news is good news...

    Probably a good thing. The federal government doesn't help much, or any government for that matter. They just cost everyone money

    No one cares about Maple farmers. Really, no one cares. I'm sure chicken, pork, beef - meat is a risky business to the public. No one ever died from maple syrup. Why in the world do we care about the federal government and maple syrup? It is hilarious that we think we're that important. We aren't. None of us. And thank Goodness!

    I started to register back when they first started, but never completed it because I read that smaller operations and those who sell over 50 of their crop retail did not need to register. I sell no bulk unless I end up with some commercial. The last time I had any was 3 yrs ago when I had 1 barrel full. Since then I've sold 100% at retail and never hit the $100,000 per year mark. At 300-400 gal production tops I'd need to get over $250 a gallon, not likely! Now after cutting back 200 gal might be my best years.

    Back when we were registered with the FDA there was some amount of confusion of whether to register or not, or whether to un-register or not. I spoke with a Chief Inspector from the FDA about it to get some clarity for us. They were actually helpful. And I de-registered because one of the first questions they asked me was whether or not we sold more than 50 percent of our crop retail. We do. There was some other info I don't remember now, but the short of it for us was selling more than 50 percent retail did not require registering. I have long since deleted the email, but I was a bit incredulous and so asked the inspector to send me an email stating that was the case. They sent it to me right away. Couldn't believe it, but it happened.
