The Lanark and District Maple Syrup Producers Association
Who we are...
The Lanark and District Maple Syrup Producers Association (LDMSPA) is a group over 90 maple syrup producers located in the Lanark County, Frontenac County, Leeds and Grenville County, and Ottawa-Carleton areas of Eastern Ontario. We are one of 11 locals who make up the membership of the Ontario Maple Syrup Producers Association (OMSPA), a provincial organization formed in 1966 to represent maple syrup producers across the province. As a producer organization we are committed to promoting the production of high quality maple products using the best available management practices.
Our region of Ontario has a long tradition of maple syrup production,
and we are proud to continue in that tradition.
What we do...
As producers, we would like to provide consumers with information
on the benefits of using maple syrup related products and where
to obtain locally produced maple syrup. We also are committed
to providing producers with a forum for networking, learning,
and contributing to the improvement of the maple syrup industry
