Terrorism concerns halt maple syrup factory tours

Maple syrup, tourists and terrorism

Aug 29, 2010

Terrorism concerns are keeping tourists off the factory floor at one of the nation's largest maple production facilities in northeastern Vermont.

For almost a century Maple Grove Farms of St. Johnsbury has produced maple syrup and maple candies. And for much of that time, tourists have been able to watch the production process from the factory floor. But no longer.

Maple Grove General Manager Steve Jones says retrofitting the plant to separate tourists from the production equipment is too expensive.
