Gov. Snyder declares March 'Michigan Maple Syrup Month'

Posted: Updated:

(03/13/13) -  Gov. Rick Snyder has declared March "Michigan Maple Syrup Month" in honor of the industry's contribution to the state economy.

According to the state, Michigan ranks seventh in the U.S. with an average yearly maple syrup production of about 100,000 gallons.

The season starts in February in the southern counties of the Lower Peninsula and runs into April in the Upper Peninsula.

Tuesday, in Tuscola County, the sap was steadily flowing at Blasius farms, as volunteers emptied the buckets from the trees and it was cooked down in the sugar shack, well into the night.
