Come walk with us through the history and life of Michigan Maple Syrup.

The history of Michigan Maple Syrup is nearly as old as the land itself! Native Americans were making maple syrup here centuries ago. Today, Michigan maple syrup is made both traditionally and in modern facilities using the latest refinement technologies. But the taste of pure maple syrup is as irresistibly delicious today as it was for our ancestors.

We invite you to explore our Web site to discover how Michigan's early inhabitants made maple syrup. Learn about the science of maple syrup production and our most recent technological innovations. Find out where you can see maple syrup being made and even how you can make it yourself. Then, try out some of our recipes and cooking suggestions, and treat yourself to the sweetness of Michigan.
