Vermont Maple Syrup Grades

Vermont changed its grading system for maple syrup on January 1, 2014.  This new grading system provides you, the consumer, with better descriptors for each classification offered.  It also allows us to offer you an even darker more flavorful pure maple syrup.  Rest assured, all our syrup is produced the same way it has been for decades, meeting all Vermont's strict maple laws.
