MAPLE SUGARING

At Maple Wind Farm, we are blessed with 85 acres of open pasture and over 45 acres of woodland that we have been managing for current use, as well as a hillside sugarbush. Currently we have over 400 taps with plans for expansion. In 2011, we installed a vacuum system instead of increasing the number of taps which made a big difference in yields for an operation of our size.

Producing Syrup since 2005

We have been producing maple syrup since 2005 in a sugar shack built with lumber from our forest. Our north facing slopes allow us to get a bit later start in the spring to begin boiling for the season.

Available at Farmers’ Markets & at the Farm

Because of our size, we currently sell primarily through farmers’ markets, with plans for expansion. Our syrup, along with frozen meats, are available at the farm by appointment.

A Vermont Tradition

Making maple syrup is an amazing part of the rural heritage in Vermont that we want to pass on to our children. It’s a complex set of rituals getting sap from a tree all the way to the sweet goodness of syrup. Done at a time of the year when the snow is receding and the sun is shining, there is nothing better than a good long boil with gallons of syrup at the end of it to show for your hard work!
