Virginia Tech to Form Maple & Tree Syrup Producers Association
According to a press release, Virginia Tech is looking for maple and tree syrup producers to join a new statewide association. This effort is being initiated by researchers at Virginia Tech’s Department of Sustainable Biomaterials in the College of Natural Resources and Environment.
Guinevere Unterbrink, a wildlife conservation student at Virginia Tech, is looking for tree syrup producers in Virginia, no matter the size of their operations.
An association would help producers apply for grants, find marketing funds, assistance, equipment and even help locate markets for syrup. An association would also raise public awareness and would help establish production standards that could earn syrups a “Virginia Grown” designation from the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services.
