Grade B is here!

Due to popular demand, we are now offering Premium Grade B on our website.  Our Premium Grade B is a late-season product with the strongest flavor of all the grades we offer. It is prized by maple syrup lovers at the table and for cooking. Enjoy!

Fancy Pints are Back!

We’ve just bottled up a whole batch of Fancy pints. Thank you for your enthusiastic interest in this product. We even took a few orders from customers who phoned in and wanted Fancy pints as soon as we had bottled more. Now, everyone can order Fancy pints again on this website. Enjoy!


Florida wins for the state with the most syrup orders in September. We’ll have to wait and see which state wins in October. Lots of orders coming from California so far.

Fancy Pints

Our Fancy grade was so popular this season that we have run out of pints of Fancy. We expect to have more bottled soon and back on our website for sale.

When I asked one customer what was so special about our Fancy grade, he put it quite simply. He cannot find it anywhere else at this price or this quality. Our quantity discounts have also been popular and we’ve been selling cases of 6 pints and 6 quarts like crazy. We’ll have more Fancy pints...

We currently have about 5,000 maple trees in production (we’ll get to more details about the farm in a later post). The syrup is produced, packaged on the farm and shipped from the farm direct to you.
