Ohio State Maple Syrup started as a student project in 2015. A group of students working on a Capstone project at The Ohio State University Mansfield campus highlighted a 19 acre area of the 600 acre campus woodland for installation of a maple syrup operation. Two years later, another Capstone group conducted a site inventory and their report was shared with some Ohio maple producers who agreed the site would be perfect for a sugar bush operation. With the help of Rep. John Patterson, Richards Maple and Gortner Maple, a sugar bush with 1100 taps was installed February 2019.
