Behind these maple syrup samples arranged from left to right as earliest made to final boil
are the stately maple trees from which this syrup was made. Usually early season maple syrup is light
with a delicate taste and is used by us to make maple candy and maple cream. A medium amber syrup
with a rich taste is usually made mid-season and is an excellent table syrup, while a dark amber
with a robust taste is made toward the end and is an excellent table as well as cooking syrup.

The following photos show how we collect the raw maple sap and boil it down to the consistency of maple syrup.

After Seth and Jon tap the trees and securely insert 5/16" spouts, the sap runs through food grade plastic
maple tubing and pipe into a holding tank in the woods. The sap is then pumped up from the woods into another tank.
From here, the sap enters the reverse osmosis machine which concentrates the sugar in the sap.

The quaint and rustic sugarhouse Tom built when he was 15 is where the concentrated sap is boiled
in a wood-fired evaporator. The fragrant aromas of the burning wood, combined with the maple smell
and the clouds of billowing steam, enables one to experience the heart and soul of maple sugaring.

A drop of maple sap is approximately 2% sugar and 98% water. Those thousands of drops of sap are collected
and boiled down. When the boiling sap reaches a certain temperature and density, it becomes maple syrup
and is drawn-off, filtered, and packaged for the consumer to purchase. Try some!
