We managed to check another item off of our summer to do list recently. Our pole barn now has a cement floor, which will make moving pallets around much easier than when it was gravel. We also added a hydraulic pallet jack to assist in that task.
We know it sounds cliche, but our team here at Nova Maple Syrup is like a family! We really do have a lot of fun together at work. The sugar shack regularly smells like maple but that delicious scent is also accompanied by the sounds of laughter.
What started 5 years ago with Jake and one other full time worker has now grown into 6 full time people. Hailee resigned from teaching in June of 2018 to join the business full time and in the past year we have welcomed two old friends and two new friends.

We are extremely lucky to have experienced continued growth in 2020, which is not only due to the hard work of our awesome employees, but also to the loyal customers we have met along the way.
We’ve partnered with our friends over at oilcreekbrewingco to swap some barrels for aging! They just filled this bourbon barrel from McLaughlin Distillery with their own smoked stout (10% ABV). Once it’s ready in a month or so we’ll age some syrup in it for ~6 months, then it will go right back to OCBC for an aged maple beer! Stay tuned
We have exciting news to share with you — we are now offering tours of our maple farm through AirBnB’s “Experiences” platform!
Tours last approximately one hour, and include walking around the grounds and sugar shack of the second largest maple farm in Crawford County, PA. You will get to learn about the whole process, from tree to pancakes, from the owners of the farm. Nova Maple Syrup has been producing syrup commercially since 2015. You will have the opportunity to sample all of our products as well as purchase them at the end of the tour.

We took some time to put our NMS merch on display in the sugar shack addition. We have added XS women’s cut t-shirts as well as 3 and 4XL sizes to our t-shirt inventory. There’s also a new item altogether that was just delivered. Pictures and pricing coming soon…

We finished hanging our sign from Ginger Worx LLC , what a beauty! No missing our maple farm now. All that’s left is to swap on a black chain and give the frame two coats of black paint, we were just too excited to wait before taking pictures. We ended up with a few extra copies so we put one on the sugar shack with a red background and hung one on our timber frame home.
