Lyle Merle received the "Producer of the Year Award" in 2007 from the New York Farm Viability Institute for his innovative thinking, roll-up-your-sleeves, hands-on development of new processes, practical application and a willingness to share his work with the rest of the agricultural industry. In 1988 Arthur E. Merle, Jr. was inducted into the Maple Hall of Fame in the American Maple Museum, Croghan, New York. This honor was bestowed for his work on behalf of maple producers at the county, state and international levels. Arthur also received the Hubbell Award in 1994. The Hubbell Award has been presented annually since 1991 by the NYS Department of Agriculture and Markets to a maple producer from New York State in recognition of the producer's work in furthering education of maple sugaring.
