We had a visitor on one of our tanks today. In the background is a manifold that we’re building to filter sap as it pumps off of our trucks

Sales Heat Map

After waking up this morning we were curious where our syrup goes after Amazon ships it. A quick Google search took us to OpenHeatMap.com where we generated these images! Here’s our first 7500 orders, that’s a lot of pancakes!

Maple Candy

06/28/2017 | Posted by jake |

Our candy is once again available on Amazon! Last year we found that while their distribution model works great for syrup, candy sits too long in warehouses all over the country. To fix this issue we’re now shipping directly from our sugar shack, orders go out the next day and typically take 2 days to arrive. We make all of our candy fresh and it is stored sealed in a freezer while it awaits shipment. Check it out and feel free to post a review since it’s a new product page.

Amazon’s Choice

We now have the Amazon Choice tag on our maple syrup, I wonder if Jeff Bazos gets his syrup through amazon? We’re interested on how the Whole Foods acquisition will play out, wouldn’t it be great to see Nova Maple Syrup in retail grocery stores some day?

Maple Cream Machine

We just finished our home made maple cream machine and made our first batch! Why pay $3000 for the same machine when we can build our own for ~$1000 and a couple hours of work? We’re working on our recipe this month so that we can make the longest lasting cream possible (cream likes to separate like natural peanut butter). We’re also working on our own custom containers. Stay tuned!

New Tank

Driveway

Our trucks beat up the driveway pretty good this season, Hailee’s Prius is going to love this freshly tailgated driveway and the trucks are going to love the newly widened areas near the house
