For over 40 years three generations of the Wallace family have been producing traditional maple syrup using sustainable traditions and a wood fired evaporator just like the old days. We collect the sap from over 5,000 taps. We also have maple peanuts, maple peanut brittle, maple spreads, cinnamon maple sugar, granulated maple sugar and maple candy.

Discover the craft of maple sugaring that has become a legend in the northeast. As the sun begins to warm the trunks of sugar maple trees, and the sap starts to flow we tap approximately 50 trees, using gravity tubing for use in our demonstrations on Maple Sugaring - Sap to Syrup. Join us Saturdays in March and enjoy the process that yields sweet rewards! We cover all the steps to get from sap to syrup.
