UVM is inviting participants to increase their skills and contribute to a growing network of maple business educational and service professionals. Educators, consultants, students and other professionals can participate to obtain more training on the maple industry, advance their own work and make connections within a growing network. See the information sheet link above or go directly to the online application to advance your studies and career with maple. This program has been extended to September 2023.
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.
