Vermont retains its title as the nation’s top maple syrup producer with a record-breaking 2.2 million gallons harvested this past spring. This year’s record broke the previous record set just last year at just over 2 million gallons, according to the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture, which released a report earlier this month.
This is the third consecutive year that Vermont has ranked the largest producer in the country.
Despite similar geography and temperate zone, Vermont produces four to 10 times more than other nearby states.
