Maple syrup production up in NY State

NEW YORK (NEWS10) – Maple syrup production in New York State reached its highest level in seven decades, despite a late season bought on by the lingering winter season.

State officials say New York farmers this year produced a record 60,000 gallons of maple syrup from more than 2.3 million taps.

The production level was up 10% from last year. The USDA reported last week that national maple syrup production was up 6.3% this season from a year ago.

New York is the #2 maple production state behind Vermont, which produced 1.3 million gallons.
