UVM is inviting participants to benefit from a project that will develop maple business education resources, expand program offerings across the US, and enhance advisory services. Current or future educators, consultants and other professionals can participate in this effort to seek more training on the maple industry and make connections with similar professionals. See this information sheet for more details: Maple Network-PD Info Sheet

Join the Benchmark Program! We are inviting syrup and sap only producers in NH, NY, Maine and Vermont to participate in the benchmark cost analysis program. Businesses that generate $100,000 or more in annual gross sales are eligible for this financial analysis and business coaching program. Contact UVM today!

Participating maple business owners will work one on one with a farm business adviser to calculate their financial cost of production for the maple enterprise. Each participant will receive a summary report of their business and be able to see how their business compares to other producers with similar operations. Business information is confidential and any shared business benchmarks will be averages or ranges to protect participant identities.
