Maple syrup

Maple syrup sample jars

Our pure and natural old-fashioned maple syrup is made entirely from the sap of Sugar Maple trees. We manage our sugarbush for the long-term health of the trees and use wood from our forests to boil the sap. Approximately 40 to 50 gallons of maple sap are boiled down to produce one gallon of maple syrup. There are no additives in our syrup, and we pack it in glass to maintain its natural flavor.

We make our maple syrup using an energy efficient wood-fired arch with a steam-away. The hot water is collected and piped into a holding tank in our greenhouse to provide heat, so every stick of firewood does double duty. Our syrup is for sale at our farm stand, and at local Farmers Markets: Rutland County Farmers Market, the Rutland Winter Farmers Market and the Dorset Farmers Market

We can also mail syrup to those of you who don’t live in the area. Give us a call or send us an email, and we’ll ship it out!

  • half gallon …. $35

    Well, I guess if it wasn’t going to be Sue and Ted’s Excellent Farm then giving Boone and Syd some props is the next best thing. It’s cool to see the website up and running and I’m sure it won’t be too long before the evaporator is up and running too. Kate and I are taking some time to ski and read and have tea/coffee before really getting ramped up for the growing season. Hopefully we’ll be able to steal ourselves away for a week&/(end) to join your list of WWOOFers.
