People are continually amazed by what it takes to make a gallon of maple syrup. If you're unfamiliar with the process, below is some information on how it all works.
Producing Maple Syrup takes a LOT of work. Were it not for the love of being in the woods as we care for the trees, being surrounded by family and friends in the sugarhouse during boiling time or being able to share it with our children we would not do it. This is a fantastic Vermont tradition that we love sharing with the next generation and people who have come to appreciate the great taste of these efforts.
If you ever find yourself in the Shaftsbury area and would like a tour of the facility, please feel free to reach out to us...we are happy to show you around. We are a short drive from Albany and Troy New York.
Don't miss the Vermont Maple Open House weekend where you can tour many different sugarhouses and experience the wonderful attributes of each of them.
