ABOUT US: We are a 2,000 tap and growing operation that started in 2002 by myself (Willie) and my brother Asa with the help of our dad. We started with just a little homemade set up with only about 20 taps and have been expanding ever since as time and budget allow. The trees we tap are located in Chichester, Epsom, and here in Pittsfield. Two of the sugar bushes we tap have recently been equipped with vacuum systems which increases sap yield and helps make the yield a little more predictable. We run the sap through a reverse osmosis machine before boiling which removes 50-75% of the water. We then boil the sap on a two-and-a-half by eight-foot wood fired evaporator.
We love making maple syrup and it is a great way to spend mud season. We hope you come see our cute rustic sugar house and the fine maple syrup we offer, and we would be happy to answer any questions you have.
