Join the Cornell Small Farms Program for this exciting online course in January:
January 17 – February 21, 2017 – with webinars each Tuesday evening from 6:00 – 7:30pm EST.
Maple syrup production is rapidly growing around the Northeast and offers a sound financial opportunity to utilize woodlots sustainably.
This six-week online course explores the range possibilities of maple sugaring on your land – be it for supplemental income or for your livelihood.
Also discussed are “alternative” trees for production, including Birch and Black Walnut. The content presented assumes the student has little past knowledge of sugaring, but a background in agriculture or forestry will be very helpful.
