Planned to bring researchers and producers together to discuss the state of our knowledge, research needs and opportunities related to syrup production in the Central Appalachian Region. Whether you fire up your evaporator to make Maple, Walnut, Birch, Sycamore, or Sorghum syrup, the Symposium will allow you the chance to interact with, share your experiences, and learn.
Friday – The Science Behind the Sweetness – research scientists will have the opportunity to present their work on sap and syrup production focused on the Central Appalachians.
Saturday – Producer Experiences and Experiments– producers experiment, try new things, and innovate all the time. Here we want to learn what they are finding out and what they need to know.
Saturday – Panel Discussions – join a panel to discuss research needs and potential opportunities in the areas of: Sanitation, Production Technology, Agroforestry, Entrepreneurship and Marketing, Alternative tree syrups, and Sorghum
Combined with a Friday evening West Virginia Welcome(bring your dancing shoes for a little Appalachian “flat footin”) and a two-day trade show.
