Quebec Looks to Vermont Maple Syrup Industry to Learn

Over the Weekend the Globe and Mail published a story, Quebec Studies Rise in Vermont Maple Syrup Production

Reporter Les Perreaux spoke with Butternut Mountain Farm's David Marvin to gain perspective on the elements fueling Vermont's growth in production. Marvin highlighted that “fundamentally, where there is a good economic opportunity and resources for agriculture, that's where investment flows.”  He also noted that for those of us here in Vermont making and selling maple syrup - “it's perhaps not quite as iconic in that we don't have a leaf on our flag, but we have maple syrup in our blood, I think.” One thing is certain though, for those of us in Vermont and here Butternut Mountain Farm maple syrup is a passion.
