In 2022, the University of Missouri Extension and Center for Agroforestry received funds from a USDA grant for investigating syrup production in Missouri. Their project will involve several steps that include a survey of hobbyists and producers, a survey of farmers markets, and eventually an educational outreach to help Missouri landowners learn about the process and possibly start a hobby, or grow their syrupmaking into a business. I welcome this effort and hope that it meets with success.
The involvement of the University brings some great resources to our hobby/business; their new website offers extensive helpful links at https://centerforagroforestry.org/treesugaring/ You may be hearing about their upcoming educational presentations and online activity.
