Meet Vermont Sugarmakers

Sugarmaking isn’t just a spring operation. Vermont’s maple sugarmakers and producers work year-round to turn maple syrup into delicious maple candy, creemees, marinades and so many other ways to enjoy the bounty of Vermont’s maple forests. Here, get to know some of Vermont’s sugarmakers and their favorite seasonal recipes.
