Tapping Tip:


The smallest tree
you should try to
tap should be
about as big as
your thigh is
around. You
should only put
one tap in a tree
that small.

 Maine Maple Sunday

Do you have an interest in making maple syrup?

You may already tap 10-15 trees, or maybe you put in 5000 taps. In either case SMMSA could be a great tool for your sugarmaking operation no matter what the size. SMMSA is committed to providing a forum for all sugarmakers both large and small to discuss ideas, concerns and share information.

What's in it for you?

Southern Maine Maple Sugarmakers Association was founded to address the needs and interests of sugarmakers who are geographically near each other, no matter what the size of their operation, nor how experienced or inexperienced they are. We can all learn from one another!
