What we do

Since its founding in 1947, our Association has represented most of the commercial and hobbyist sugarmaking in Massachusetts. While we cannot conduct actual inspections, we expect our members to conform to all state and federal standards regarding the production and sale of maple products. We disseminate information to our members which helps them to maintain strong quality control and we stand ready to assist them with specific problems as needed. We maintain a fairly complete library of up-to-date maple research publications, and will endeavor to answer your specific questions. We also act as your representative to both state and federal governments on specific legislative issues, that effect the maple producers.

We are a non-profit organization recognized by the state and federal non-profit laws. Our funds come from a small commission on discounted containers and supplies as well as from membership dues. We receive no state or federal financial assistance. We are governed by a nine member Board of Directors elected yearly by the general membership. Daily operations are conducted by a paid Coordinator who serves with the direction of the Board.
