100% Pure Maple Syrup

It's In Our Roots

The gradually warming days of March are a sure sign that sugaring season is right around the corner. Vermont is the nation’s leading producer of maple syrup. Producing over 1.3 million gallons of syrup, Vermont generates 42% of the country’s maple syrup. Some are thinking “Wow, that’s a lot for such a small state!” but keep in mind, that’s coming from more than 1,500 sugar houses statewide.

Vermonters are proud of their sugarmakers and the products they make. Maple syrup is all-natural and made by a very simple process. Next time you’re in Vermont, especially in the spring, visit a sugar house and buy some maple syrup. Not only are you bringing a small piece of Vermont home with you, but you’re supporting the agricultural heritage and the sugarmakers who work so hard to sustain the productivity of their land. The best part is, you’re purchasing maple products directly from the people who produce them.
