The 2023 Mass Maple annual meeting will be held at Mohawk High School in Buckland on Saturday, January 14, from 9:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.

The trade show of maple equipment vendors will begin at 9:00 a.m., along with coffee and snacks. The annual business meeting will begin at 10:45, and will include an election for new board members. Lunch from Cliff’s BBQ will begin at noon.

The after-lunch workshop, presented by Mark Isselhardt, Extension Maple Specialist at UVM, will be: Ensuring Quality Syrup. The way you approach each step of the maple sugar¬ing process can mean the difference between prize-winning syrup and off-flavored unsaleable products. This workshop will follow the process from the tree to the bottle, considering the steps that represent the best opportunities to enhance the quality of your syrup, as well as those that pose the greatest risk to your final product.
