Miles of blue tubing can be seen throughout the woods as sap is collected with a vacuum pump and sent directly to the newly built sugar house. A reverse osmosis machine concentrates the sap by removing half of the water before sending the sap to the 10 foot pellet fired evaporator. Steam stacks rise 25 feet above the evaporator and can be seen releasing clouds of steam from a good distance for those passing by. The sap slowly makes its way through the evaporator and the boiling process in 3 separate pans. Each time the sap thickens, it’s sent on to the next pan.
The final product, the amazing syrup boiled to just the right consistency, is released from the evaporator and sent through a purification process and then bottled for the consumer. Each tasty drop of syrup is carefully checked throughout the process to ensure its superior quality and taste.
Energy and natural resource conservation are high priority in the production of Farmhouse Maple. The tubing system is gentle on the trees and doesn't restrict the natural habitat of the woodland wildlife. The wood pellets used in heating the evaporator are made from forest remnants of wood shavings and sawdust. Wood pellets are among the cleanest-burning and most renewable sources of energy available. Producing quality maple products with the least impact to the environment is important at Farmhouse Maple.
Farmhouse Maple strives to produce a superior quality, 100% pure maple syrup and maple products using the highest standards and the most eco-friendly systems possible. Farmhouse Maple resolves to enhance consumer information on the different maple grades, the maple making process, and the benefits of maple.
