Our Story Maple made perfect in the hills of Vermont.

The Beginning

Did you hear the one about the gourmet chef, the chemist/accountant and the guy who made syrup in his college dorm? It's a true story about three people united by a passion for maple. We want everyone to taste the true flavor of maple. And we're inspired to break boundaries by creating innovative products, showing the world that maple isn't just for breakfast anymore.

Our Place

We found what we were looking for in the small town of Island Pond, Vermont: 25,000 acres of maple trees ideally situated for perfect sap making, in quality and quantity. We found our sugarhouse in what used to be a furniture factory. And we found that the best, and only, breakfast in town is made at the gas station.

Our Vision

In those acres of trees, we saw a raw product: simple, healthful, sustainable and organic. With that sap and our unique process, we were set on changing maple forever. First, make the best tasting, highest quality syrup in the world—light, pure, with true maple flavor. Second, take what nature has to offer and create new and innovative and really delicious products that surprise and delight.

We're 100% Vermont. It's about the care that goes into our 25,000 acres and how to preserve it for years to come.

The Guild

We are gourmet food innovators and guys who keep the tap lines flowing. We trek deep into frozen woods and stand amidst the steam of maple processors. We are a guild in that we all have a common goal and pursuit: to make the finest maple syrup and maple-based products. It's all for the love of maple.



Man With A Vision

Maple sap runs in Bob's veins. He likes to say that once you experience a sugaring season, you'll always get that magic feeling again when winter starts to warm and thaw. Without Founder Bob none of this would have happened.



Keeper of the Sugar House

One of the first employees, Deek assists in Building and Grounds maintenance. He is a lifelong resident of Island Pond. As you drive by, wave to the guy on the tractor.



Wearer of Many Hats

All Guild members play multiple roles. We are a team, after all. Nick can boil sap, tap, and does a mean hydrometer reading. He was recently promoted to plant manager since he was the first one to show up the day we needed one.



Senior Steam-Crafter™

Knows the Maple Guild processes from start to finish, backwards, upside down and inside out. We hear he recites it in his sleep. Jesse is an integral part of our highly-specific production process. He even knows most of the trees by name.
