In the 2015 Geauga County Maple syrup Festival Maple Products Contest, there were 74 maple syrup entries representing 45,209 taps. The contest is divided into 3 divisions; Geauga County Producer, Out of County, and the Hobby Divisions. Maple Confections are also judged. The winners of this year’s contest were as follows: Geauga County Producer; Soubousta Farm, Robert Butler and Kevin Voulk operators, Out of County Division; Goodell Farm Mantua, Ohio, Nathan Goodell and Family operators, and Skip Lazanich winner of the Hobby Division. In the Confections Division the overall winner was Paul Janoske Jr. from Chardon and in the Junior Division was won by David Gingerich from Parkman Township. This year’s inductee into the Geauga County Maple Hall of Fame was the Moseley Family from Thompson Township. The Moseley Family just celebrated the 200th anniversary of their farm in 2014. The farm has been involved in maple production for the better part of two centuries. They are truly one of the pioneer families of Geauga County and have played a major role in the county’s maple heritage. <a
