North American Maple Producing Regions

Did you know that the largest (and largest by far....by almost 10 times) maple producing region in the world is the province of Quebec?  Vermont is the largest region in the USA but is only a tenth of the size of la belle province.

Canada produces 71% of the world’s pure maple syrup, 91% of which is produced in Quebec.
