Vermont’s maple syrup is in demand more than ever. Total Vermont maple syrup production in 2022 was 2.55 million gallons, an 800,000 increase over the prior year and about half of the U.S. production of maple syrup, according to the Vermont Maple Sugarmakers Association.

While I haven’t been to all of Vermont’s sugarhouses, here are some maple producers that I know and love who are open for the annual Maple Open House celebration.
