UNDERHILL, Vt. (WCAX) - The Proctor Maple Research Center is celebrating 75 years with congressional recognition.
According to the University of Vermont, the center was entered in the Congressional Record with a Senate message written by Patrick Leahy.
Sen. Leahy says the center has provided quote “invaluable support to the maple industry.”
The research center was opened in 1947 as a way to create and study maple syrup.
Since then, thousands of taps have been set, and the center partners with Vermont’s producers on best practices.
