Abstract

The purpose of this study is to examine the statewide economic contribution of maple production in Maine.Maine has the third largest maple production industry in the United States—behind Vermont and New York—in terms of numbers of taps and syrup production in 2013. The maple production industry in Maine is characterized by a relatively small number of farms accounting for the vast majority of syrup that is produced. Maine’s maple industry has an annual statewide economic contribution, including multiplier effects, of an estimated $48.7 million in output, 805 full- and part-time jobs, and $25.1 million in labor income.
