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. We boil our maple syrup the old-fashioned way over a wood-fired arch, providing greater depth of flavor than many large commercial operations. Every batch of maple syrup we make is 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.
Maple syrup is available for purchase in the Christmas Shop during December and at the Sugar House (same address) during March. Visitors are always welcome during sugaring season!
