Who We Are

Celebrating 75 Years!

Founded in 1943, The New Hampshire Maple Producers Association, Inc. is a non-profit trade association dedicated to promoting the high quality of New Hampshire’s maple tradition. The NHMPA organizes several public events throughout the year including Maple Sugaring Month, featuring Maple Weekend, during which many of New Hampshire’s sugar houses open their doors to the public.

The NHMPA also hosts the annual Carlisle Award competition, a judged contest in which a prize is awarded to the producers of the highest quality maple syrup. Each year, as the season begins, the NHMPA invites the governor to kick off the season by tapping the first maple tree.
