The unseasonably cold start to March won’t put a damper on maple syrup harvesting. The maple syrup season in Ohio lasts from mid-February through early April and we are the fourth-ranked producing state. Maple syrup harvesting contributes $5 million to our economy annually.
About 100,000 gallons are produced each year by Ohio’s 900 maple tree farms. It takes 40-50 gallons of sap to produce one gallon of syrup. Maple syrup is healthy because it contains antioxidants, minerals and vitamins.
