Jerry Jacobson

Harvesting maple syrup has a long history in Minnesota, dating back to the 1500′s when Native Americans transformed sap into maple sugar. Today, Jerry Jacobson of Vergas, MN has perfected his method of making maple syrup by realizing that winter weather conditions have a direct effect on his harvest in the spring.

About the Minnesota Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund

In 2008, Minnesota voters passed a landmark piece of legislation — the Minnesota Clean Water, Land, and Legacy Amendment — which provided funding to public television stations serving audiences in Minnesota. Its mission is to help preserve and document the treasures of culture, history, and heritage that make Minnesota special, and to increase access to the natural and cultural resources we all share. Click here for more information.
