We have long History
We have a proud history of making high quality maple Syrup. It’s been a tradition in our family for over fifty years.
The Cooper-Ellis family has been in the maple syrup business for over fifty years. During the 1950’s and 60’s we sold maple syrup under the Cooper-Ellis Sugar Makers label. Today, Fraser and Peter Cooper-Ellis jointly own and operate CE Maple, one of the largest and most respected Southern-Vermont maple syrup farms.
CE Maple is known for producing consistently high-quality, Vermont maple syrup. In addition to CE Maple, Fraser and Peter both individually own and operate retail, maple syrup businesses. Fraser owns and operates Fraser’s Vermont Maple. Peter owns and operates Hidden Springs Maple.
