The Vermont Agency of Agriculture, Food, and Markets, in partnership with the Vermont Sugarmakers Association and UVM Extension, will hold the second of three public meetings — this one scheduled for 7 p.m. Wednesday at South Woodstock Fire Station — to take comment on proposed changes to the maple grading system.
The changes have been proposed to align the Vermont grading system with the standard recommended by the International Maple Syrup Institute, according to the agency. There will be an opportunity for public comment.
The meetings will begin promptly at 7 p.m. After a brief presentation outlining the proposed changes, discussion will be moderated by Lynn Coale, Director of the Hannaford Career Center and a member of the Agriculture and Forest Products Development Board.
Input from these meetings will inform future consideration of the maple grading system standards.
