Ohio State University Extension presents Ohio Maple Days, a series of educational sessions on maple syrup production to help maple syrup producers and hobbyists prepare for the coming season.
New this year, the Ohio Maple Producers Association will host One Sweet Gathering, which includes a social hour; a cash bar with maple beers and other maple beverages; a three-course, maple-infused benefit dinner; and game night. Proceeds will support education and research at The Ohio State University at Mansfield.
Ohio Maple Days kicks off Friday, Dec. 9, from 1–5 p.m. with a half-day seminar called Maple Business Planning Deep Dive. Mark Cannella, Extension associate professor, University of Vermont, will present lessons on strategic planning, marketing, and managing finances toward profitability. This longer-form program will offer time for group discussion and time to work on individual basic business planning steps.
Additional sessions will run Saturday, Dec. 10, from 9–4 p.m. and will include research talks, seminars, vendor displays, and downtime to enjoy meals and engage with fellow maple enthusiasts.
