WESTON, W.Va. (AP) - The West Virginia Department of Agriculture says new maple syrup producers have been tapping trees and expanding markets in the state and around the U.S.

The West Virginia Maple Syrup Producers Association is holding its annual meeting and competition on Saturday in Weston, and anyone is welcome to attend. The meeting starts at 9:30 a.m. at the Agriculture Department’s Weston Field Office with the competition at 1 p.m.

The competition is open to maple products from syrup and cream to candy and sugar, with judges looking for flavor, color and appearance.

The state held its first Maple Open House in March, and more than a dozen producers and related businesses gave the public a look at what goes into making and marketing maple syrup.
