Location of Document
Through interviews with producers, the authors present a picture of the maple syrup industry in Haliburton County. Travelling the area, they map out 10 sugarbushes and relate the experiences of the producers with regard to their work, their sense of living on the land, and their perspectives on cooperative efforts and membership in a central organization such as the Ontario Maple Syrup Producers Association.
The authors' reflections on the sense of community among producers and the economics of the industry conclude the paper.
