N.H. Maple Syrup Production Levels Return To Normal

Maple syrup production returned to normal levels in the Granite State this year.

That’s according to a report issued by the U.S. Department of Agriculture on Thursday.

The report shows that 124 thousand gallons of maple syrup were produced in New Hampshire this year.

Last year, the state produced only 76 thousand gallons, due to the unusually warm weather.

The yield per tap also more than doubled in New Hampshire this year.

Still, the state only produces roughly 4 percent of the nation’s maple syrup.

Vermont remains the leader, accounting for 40 percent of the nation’s maple syrup production.
