About NYS Maple Association
The New York State Maple Producers Association (NYSMPA) is a not-for-profit organization composed of the folks who produce maple syrup and related maple products throughout New York State. There are more than 500 entrepreneurs among our members, and are the dedicated in taking pride in crafting the finest quality maple syrup, sugar, snacks, spreads, and maple gift items. Currently, New York State is the second largest maple producing state in America.
We are a diverse group of small business people who understand what it means to work hard in the forests, who take pride to practice sustainable wood lot management, so that healthy maple trees will yield their sweet sap year after year. This is the way it has been for hundreds of years and we intend for the tasty tradition of maple to continue for years more in the future.
It takes more than 40 gallons of maple tree sap to produce one gallon of pure maple syrup. All that we do to make syrup is boil the sap; we don’t add anything, we just concentrate it into that wonderful amber-colored syrup that millions of families have come to love. We make it naturally, all over the great state of New York! Chances are there is a sugarmaker nearby; this will allow you to “taste the tradition” for yourself!

In addition to our popular Maple Center at the New York State Fair and brand new Educational Center, we participate in numerous local and regional events statewide to promote maple products.
Sap generally runs and is collected by producers in late winter. Maple Weekend highlights the maple season in March when the fresh crop becomes a tasty treat offered to thousands of visitors who tour local sugar houses.
We take pride in New York and its unique environment that allows us to produce one of nature’s magnificent crops. We uphold the tradition of generations who came before us, including Native Americans, who were the first to practice the maple trade.
Come, taste the tradition! Welcome to New York Maple!
