In late winter, we install roughly 13,000 taps and begin the process of harvesting pure sap right in the woods of Locke, NY. A few weeks later, with gallons upon gallons of sap in storage, we begin the boiling process which evaporates the right amount of water from our sap until we’ve reached a rich golden brown grade A syrup. Part of why we chose to make maple syrup is the versatility that comes along with this luxorious product.
Pure maple syrup is not only a staple on top of your pancakes and waffles. It’s a great substitute for processed sugar, and even comes along with nutritional benefits like minerals and antioxidants. Use it in equal parts in your baked goods, on sauteed vegetables, grilled meats, pour some in your smoothie or cocktail or on top of yogurt and ice cream as natural sweetener.
Our rustic Syrup barn in Locke, NY is where our production process takes place. We’ve put a lot of focus on the process itself, resulting in a pure, quality product. Our process relies on reverse osmosis; a purification process that extracts both water and large particles from our sap in order to create our signature thick, silky smooth Grade A amber syrup.
In an effort to acknowledge our energy usage, our family committed to sustainability by re-purposing used materials for about 75% of our sugar barn materials.
