The International Maple Grading School is for maple producers, bulk syrup buyers, state and provincial inspectors, and others needing to accurately grade maple syrup or judge maple product entries at fairs and contests. Quality control issues are also addressed. This school will provide a strong scientific base combined with intensive hands-on exercises. This approach will enable participants to learn how to grade or judge maple products with confidence. The registration fee of $135 per person includes refreshments, lunches, reference materials and a take home maple grading kit.The International Maple Grading School is sponsored by the International Maple Syrup Institute, University of Maine Cooperative Extension, and the Vermont Agency of Agriculture, Food and Markets.
