STATEWIDE – Senator Susan Collins rang in Maine Maple Sunday at Black Acres Farm as she celebrated the 33rd Annual Maine Maple Weekend.
While visiting the farm Collins spoke about the importance of the industry to our state which brings in millions of dollars to the economy.
She recently joined an effort by the Food and Drug Administration taking action against maple manufacturers who falsely advertise that their products contain “authentic maple syrup”.
She says this hurts the reputation of the producers.
This weekend’s event gave tours of new sugar house additions and more.
