Posted: Updated:

BURT LAKE, Mich. (AP) - The Commercial Maple Syrup Producers of Michigan has received a $10,000 grant that will be used to help assess expansion opportunities for the state industry.

The group is made up of Michigan's larger maple syrup operations.

It recently was awarded a Strategic Growth Initiative grant, which are aimed at growing the state's food and agriculture industry.

Craig Waldron is the owner of Far Hills Maple Syrup LLC in Burt Lake, one of the largest commercial maple syrup operations in Michigan. He's also chairman of the Commercial Maple Syrup Producers of Michigan.

Waldron tells the Cheboygan Daily Tribune room for growth in the state's maple syrup industry is staggering. He says statistics show the U.S. imports four times more Canadian maple syrup than it produces here.
