New Tank

11/22/2017 | Posted by jake |

Out with the old 1800 gallon tank, in with the new 3600 gallon low profile tank. Between this upgrade and another wireless camera we shouldn’t spill any sap on the west side of our Robinson road property this season! Happy Thanksgiving, and don’t forget maple syrup goes good on literally everything!

Meet the newest member of our tapping crew – Dexter! He arrived two weeks early and has been busy building his strength up for the 2018 maple season. We couldn’t be more excited!

 

Map Prints

11/13/2017 | Posted by jake |

We just received our 36×24″ laminated prints for each of our properties. These will come in handy in January, each of our tappers will have their own color dry erase marker to mark what’s been tapped and what needs repaired.

eBay

10/08/2017 | Posted by jake |

We just hit the 1000+ feedback mark on eBay this weekend, 100% positive reviews. While we do sell the majority of our products on Amazon, eBay has been a great outlet as well. Stay tuned this month, we’re working with a well known retailer on making our products available locally (you can still pickup syrup/sugar at Davenport fruit farms)

Amazon Review

09/23/2017 | Posted by jake |

We love reading reviews posted to our amazon page. We’re up to 500 or so on all of our product pages, almost all of them 4/5 stars. Here is a gem we just received –

“I bought a gallon of this liquid heaven. I put it on everything: pancakes, oatmeal, spaghetti. It’s so damn delicious! And I went to their website and read their story. I fell in love with Nova the dog, and I had to try what these folks were cookin’ up. I eat a lot of maple syrup. Most store bought commercial brands are blends that have few, if any, nuances. So, Nova is more small batch in taste, and it packs a hefty maple wallop. Sugar content is the same as any other brand. This will become my pantry staple for eternity. All other brands are inferior to this. These folks are gonna need a lot more trees pretty soon if they keep pumping out maple sauce like this.Best wishes to the family and the new biz!”

Portland Arboretum

We visited the Portland Arboretum this weekend and found plenty of strange maple trees, too bad we can’t tap them to try their syrup!

Walnut

09/14/2017 | Posted by jake |

We always thin our sugar bushes before installing tubing so that the maple trees and other timber receive enough sunlight and soil to thrive. Usually we take out the weakest, damaged, and undesirable tree species first, but our property on Brass road had some mature black walnut that was ready to harvest. We’ve finally finished making floorboards out of some of it for our new home. C&M milled and coated 1121 sq.ft. for us, it looks amazing. We can’t wait to make some tap hole maple in 5-10 years on our next harvest!

Davenport Display

Nova visited Davenport just before closing time earlier today to check out the syrup display — she approves and highly recommends making a trip out there now that they’re open for the season! — at Davenport Fruit Farm.
