Proctor Maple Research Center

The Proctor Maple Research Center consists of about 200 acres of wooded and open land.  Approximately 35-40 acres is an actively managed sugarbush for maple syrup production and research. 

The main laboratory building contains modern research facilities, offices, a kitchen, workshops, and a conference room accommodating up to 75 people and equipped for presentations and teaching (the conference room is available to UVM Departments and other organizations for classroom teaching, meetings, and retreats).  The sugarhouse is used for research and maple syrup production. Other buildings include the Maple Production Research Facility, sap storage and barrel storage sheds, and several small outlying research buildings.

Both UVM affilliates and non-affiliates use PMRC. Check with PMRC staff to be sure all necessary agreements, trainings and Memorandums of Understanding are completed before use.
