Our syrup has been Certified Organic through the Northeast Organic Farming Association of Vermont (NOFA-VT) since 2004.
Maple syrup production is covered by the Wild Crop Harvesting Standard which states that a wild crop must be harvested in a manner that ensures that such harvesting or gathering will not be destructive to the environment and will sustain the growth and production of the wild crop. We choose to follow these Organic Standards as part of our commitment to being good stewards of our land and to ensure that a harvest of maple syrup from our trees will continue to grace tables for generations.
Certified Organic maple syrup production is defined by:
- Cultural practices designed to maintain tree health and ensure long term preservation of the sugar bush as an ecosystem; and
- The prohibition of synthetic materials added unless included on the National List of Allowed Substances
