Maple Industry Continues to Grow in New York State


The New York Maple Industry continues to grow throughout the state. In 2022, New York maple producers had a record-breaking year for 2022, producing 845,000 gallons of maple syrup.

New York ranks second in maple production, after Vermont. New York though, is home to the largest resource of tappable maple trees in the nation and has over 2,000 maple sugar makers.

“Maple production in New York is thriving as the industry continues to set records and ranks second in the nation in this sweet crop,” Governor Hochul said. “I thank our producers who work hard to make the delicious, innovative, and unique maple products we all enjoy, and encourage all New Yorkers to take part in Maple Weekends this month to sample some of the world-class items that local vendors have to offer.”

For 2022, the state’s maple industry used 2.9 million taps, tying the record from 2021.
