The event was held here at the Remick farmstead and organized by the New Hampshire Maple Producers. The governor successfully placed three taps in our “signature” 100+-year-old maple tree, assisted by students from Madison Elementary School.

Grading Terms for New Hampshire Maple Syrup

Read information about grading terms adopted by the USDA in 2016.

Grade A | Golden Color and Delicate Taste
The first runs of sap in the early spring make the lightest maple syrup. Recommended for use with waffles, pancakes, or ice cream.

Grade A | Amber Color and Rich Taste
As the season progresses, this more flavorful syrup is produced—considered the “classic” taste of maple syrup. Recommended for waffles and pancakes and for use in cooking and baking.

Grade A | Dark Color and Robust Taste
Near the end of the season, at about weeks 4–6 of the sap flow, this stronger-flavored syrup is produced. Recommended for recipes that require a heavy maple flavor.

Grade A | Very Dark and Strong Taste
At the very end of maple season, small amounts of syrup that are very strong in flavor are produced. Recommended as a substitute for molasses, and for use in cooking and making maple-flavored candies.
