pure maple syrup made on our family farms

We are a collective of small family farms in the hills of Vermont. We farm independently and then sell our syrup collectively under the 'Maple Farmers' label. Each bottle is labeled with the farm that made the syrup. Our families take great pride in making the best pure Vermont maple syrup available. You will taste the difference!

The Farmers of The Vermont Maple Farmers Collective

We are a diverse group of Vermont farmers: we live on dairy farms and vegetable farms; we raise animals and we operate sawmills; we grow cut flowers and we build stone walls; we are engineers, plumbers, and carpenters. Crafting small-batch pure Vermont maple syrup is our common link and our passion.

Pure Maple Syrup Tasting Guide

The flavors of pure Vermont maple syrup can vary significantly. The terroir of the soil, weather, and processing methods of the tree sap impacts the flavors. Whether it is floral notes, a butterscotch bouquet, or a hint of chocolate, the different flavors of pure unadulterated maple syrup are a delight for the senses.

Bird-Friendly Maple Syrup

Bird-Friendly Maple Syrup

Audubon Vermont’s Bird-Friendly Maple Project encourages the management of maple sugarbushes that improve habitat for songbirds. By fostering a diverse forest, maple farmers can provide an environment that is more welcoming to birds as well as mammals and amphibians.

How Much Sap does it Really Take?

I cringe a little when someone states matter-of-factly that it takes 40 gallons of sap to make one gallon of maple syrup. The answer to that question really depends on the sugar content of the sap which is highly variable.

Taste the Best Pure Vermont Maple Syrup

Our pure Vermont maple syrup is made with traditional methods on small family farms. The caramelized flavors of maple syrup are exceptional when the batches are small. Most maple syrup is mass produced with high-brix reverse osmosis and steam boilers. It just doesn't taste the same. Vermonters know what makes good maple syrup, and we want to share our pure, unadulterated maple syrup experience with you. You will taste the difference. It's a little bit of Vermont in a Bottle.
