Doing Right by the Forest
A few hundred years ago, sustainable farming was just called … farming. Since the mid-1800s, our family farm has been acting as responsible stewards of the forest, following a sustainable approach to agriculture long before anyone had a specific name for it.
As part of a fabric of nearly 16,000 sugarmakers in the U.S. who are preserving maple forests and keeping land free from urban sprawl, we’re helping to preserve crucial habitat for distinct plants and animals that need large, intact tracts of forest to survive. And while sustainable farming is part of our family’s history, we’re just as focused on bringing maple farming into the future, by increasing efficiency, reducing our carbon footprint, and doing all we can to make sure that small family farms – and the small town economies that depend on them – thrive.
