Maple Madness Driving Trail
Maple Ohio Magazine

Dear Ohio Maple Enthusiasts,

Hello, my name is Susan Mykrantz and I am excited to be working on the 2017 Maple Madness Tour and 2017 Maple Ohio Magazine.

Although I am not a maple producer, I am a maple consumer with an admitted fondness for maple sugar candy and maple cream. I believe that the Ohio maple industry produces a high quality product that is second to none in the country and I am excited to have the opportunity to help promote your industry.

I want to take this opportunity to share a little bit about my background. I grew up on a Registered Jersey farm in Wooster, Ohio and was active in 4-H, FFA and Jersey youth activities. Following my graduation from The Ohio State University with a degree in Dairy Science and Agricultural Economics, I worked on my father's dairy farm until he dispersed the herd in the early 1980's. At that time, I took a job as a freelance writer/photographer for a weekly newspaper and I had the opportunity to cover numerous maple meetings and meet many maple producers.

I continue to freelance for several agricultural newspapers, including Farm and Dairy, Farmworld and Farmshine. I also edit the Ohio Jersey News.

Now that you know a little bit about me, I would like to invite you to share your story by participating in the Maple Madness Tour and advertising in the Maple Ohio Magazine. The purpose of these projects is to advertise, promote and market Ohio maple products.

As consumers are looking for wholesome, natural products, this is a great opportunity to increase the visibility of Ohio maple, not only to Ohio consumers but across the country.

Participating in the maple tour and advertising in the magazine are great opportunities to tell your story to consumers and promote the versatility that maple has to offer as a cooking ingredient.

I want to encourage you to take part in both of these opportunities. They are a great way to promote your farm and your industry.

As an added benefit, I am working with the Ohio Maple Producers Association to include both the magazine and the tour information on their website.

Enclosed please find a registration form for the tour and advertising form for the magazine. Please fill them out and return them no later than December 1, 2016. Funds raised go toward promoting the tour and Ohio's maple industry.

If you have questions or would like more information about these events, please feel free to contact me at jerseyfan@sssnet.com or 330-749-0049.

Thank you for your support of this project to benefit the Ohio maple industry.

Susan Mykrantz
