159 millions pounds of maple syrup
A late spring and cold temperatures did not interfere with Mother Nature’s generosity. This year Quebec’s 7,400 maple syrup businesses harvested more than 159 million pounds of maple syrup. That’s an average of 3.43 pounds per tap. According to the Québec Maple Syrup Producers, that’s reason to celebrate.
In 2018, the season was subpar overall, with yields that varied tremendously from one maple region to the next. Against all odds, Quebec’s producers overcame a late stard to produce 41 million pounds more maple syrup than last year.
