We started making maple syrup in 2014 as a way to spend time together as a family outside and share maple syrup with friends and family. In 2017, we built our sugarhouse, installed sap lines, and began selling maple syrup online. It turns out everyone loves maple! Not only syrup but granulated maple sugar and crumbles too. Our little sugarbush could only produce so much sap each spring, so we began purchasing maple syrup from other small, wood-fired, bird-friendly sugarmakers in Vermont to fulfill orders for our maple sugar products. It has been a way to support other small sugarmakers, and we are especially grateful to Maple Mountain Sugarhouse and the Buck Family Maple Farm for working with us.
THE BRIDGE ROAD
In addition to the sugar woods, our property is home to a 1923 caboose which traveled on "The Bridge Road" line on the St. Johnsbury and Lamoille County Railroad. The 100 mile corridor from Swanton to St. Johnsbury is currently being converted into the Lamoille Valley Rail Trail, the longest all-season recreational trail in New England. We are currently renovating the caboose to be a useable space while keeping it as close to a historical replica as possible.
