Events

    We are always happy to share our love and knowledge of maple syrup production. Watch this page for postings about various events that may be of interest to you. Throughout the year we will post information about upcoming Minnesota events, which are open to the public. For our MMSPA members we post information about our Spring and Fall member meetings. We also show the dates and locations for the annual NAMSC/ISMI International Conference.

    Fall membership Meeting

    MMSPA Fall Meeting September 24 – Mark your Calendar! 

    The annual fall meeting of the Minnesota Maple Syrup Producers Association (MMSPA) will be held September 24th at the Tamarack Nature Center in White Bear Lake (5287 Otter Lake Road, MN. 55110).  We are tentatively planning an assortment of presentations and sugarbush tours.  Morning refreshments and lunch will be provided.  There will also be a social gathering the evening prior to the meeting. You will receive a flyer in the mail once the details are finalized.  In the meantime, save the date for our annual autumn gathering.  It is a great time to learn more about maple sugaring and have the opportunity to socialize with other syrup-makers.
