Maine Maple Syrup

Always Pure...........Always Natural..........Always loved..........

Enjoy the Natural Sweetness of Maine's Maple Syrup


Pure Maine maple syrup with a hint of the great north woods in it, has been brightening the flavor of fine, downeast food since long before the colonists arrived. Now, hundreds of years later, the quality is excellent, the degree of sweetness is fixed by law, and the uniquely delicious taste still varies as it always has. Sometimes the syrup is dark and rich, sometimes pale gold and delicate. It all depends on the soil and terrain, the wind and the weather, just like wine.

Maine Maple Sunday, 2016!
Sugarhouses all over Maine, held Maine Maple Sunday this spring.  What an exciting day for friends and families to get out and celebrate the arrival of spring with a trip to their local sugarhouse.  Most sugarhouses gave out lots of free maple samples, gave educational tours, and held activities for people to do around the theme of Maple in Maine.  It is estimated that between 75,000-100,000 people, almost a tenth of the population of Maine, visited a sugarhouse for open house events.  Save the date for next year-   March 26, 2017.  We hope to see you again!
