BROOKINGS, S.D. (AP) - The South Dakota State University Extension will be hosting five workshops over the next two weeks to teach individuals how to process maple syrup.

The workshops are for people with a few sugar, silver maple or boxelder trees who are interested in hobby maple syrup production or are considering small commercial production.

The workshops will be held in Aberdeen, Brookings, Sioux Falls, Watertown and Yankton. The first one is scheduled for Thursday at the McCrory Gardens Education and Visitor Center in Brookings.

The SDSU Extension says there’s no cost to attend the workshops thanks to funding from a specialty crops grant program administered by the state’s Department of Agriculture.
