Maple syrup and other maple products are luxury items which are produced in northern New York. This presentation will describe how the process of making maple syrup has changed over the years. The presenter will show slides of some of the equipment used in the process today.

Arthur Hurlbut has been making maple syrup for his entire life, but only for the last 20 years has his operation been of a commercial size. The family business now has about 3800 taps and produces about 2500 gallons of syrup per year.
