Wisconsin syrup production bounces back with record year

UNDATED, WI (WTAQ) - Maple syrup production in the state has hit a 20-year high.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture says farmers produced 265,000 gallons of syrup this season, the highest amount ever recorded since the USDA began tracking maple syrup in 1992.

Good news for maple syrup farmers, since last year was one of the worse recorded seasons at 50,000 gallons produced.

The USDA says the longer harvest season of 29 days helped with the record-breaking statistics.

Nationally, production is also up at 1.34 million gallons
