Maple Syrup Season in Michigan

March 17, 2016

Michael Suitor, FFA advisor at Alcona High School in Lincoln, Mich., describes his FFA chapter’s maple syrup operation. Each year during maple syrup season, Michael’s students run a sugar shack, doing everything from tapping the trees and gathering the sap to making and bottling the syrup. He says managing the sugar shack gives his students valuable hands-on business skills.

This interview aired on the March 12, 2016 “FFA Today” show on Rural Radio SiriusXM Channel 147.
