WOOD-FIRED MAPLE SYRUP
The Official Flavor of Vermont
Making Maple Syrup
Our sap is collected just down the road on East Munger Street, then it's boiled down to syrup in our newly built sugar house next to the Christmas shop.
Wood-fired Vermont maple syrup is the gold standard for maple syrup enthusiasts. At our farm, we take pride in boiling our sap down to syrup over a wood-fired arch, which gives our maple syrup a rich and distinct flavor that sets it apart from syrup produced by large commercial operations. We believe in preserving the traditional methods of making maple syrup, which means that every batch of syrup we produce is carefully tasted and graded by us before being hand-bottled.
Maple forests, often referred to as sugarbushes, are one of the most environmentally-friendly agricultural crops. Sugarbushes are managed forests with trees that range from 1-200 years old. We are committed to managing a diverse sugarbush. The inclusion of different tree species lowers the amount of syrup a sugarbush can produce, but it creates a healthier, more vibrant ecosystem within the forest.
