Yes, we were surprised to learn on vacation in the Shenandoah National Park area that the highlands of Virginia can produce maple syrup. Traveling light, we weren't able to purchase the half-gallon jug we found but we were thrilled to learn that the geography of maple goes even farther than we'd realized.
Apparently there is even a Highland Maple Festival in March. Another trip to Virginia anyone? Or just curious about Southern maple? Check out this store to order a sample!
