Canning maple syrup
Artisan maple syrup and local honey

Many of the trees on our farm are sugar maples.  In the summer, their seeds provide food for many birds and animals, including a large resident flock of wild turkey.  In the fall, these maples brighten our farm with glowing reds and golden yellows.  And in the spring, we use our small home-built evaporator to make a dark amber maple syrup that is perfect for pancakes, waffles, cornbread, and ice cream!

Sugar maple tapping tools
Local Honey

These tools, used to tap the sugar maples, represent three generations of our family.  The wooden brace belonged to Jan's father.  The blue brace is Tim's.  The small hammer was Colin's first hammer, given to him as a 10th birthday gift from his grandmother.  It's a perfect weight for gently tapping in the spiles (center).

Honey bees are an essential part of fruit and vegetable production.    For over 30 years we've had hives on our farm in a cooperative arrangement with local beekeepers.  We're proud to be able to bring you local honey sourced from our farm and other Central Minnesota farms.  Your purchase helps to keep commercial beekeeping viable, and protects the vital pollinator services beekeepers provide.
