USDA maple syrup grant aims to expand Wisconsin production

A new Extension program will help expand maple syrup production in Wisconsin.

Jeremy Solin is a natural resource professional, and small business owner whose children are fifth-generation syrup producers in the Stevens Point and Antigo areas.  He says it’s great to see the University of Wisconsin Extension get more directly involved with help from a 470-thousand-dollar USDA grant.

Solin says farmers with sugar maple trees on their land can benefit from producing syrup.
