Butternut Mountain Farm, our source for Organic Maple Sugar (and Organic Maple Syrup), is a family owned 600 acre tree farm located in Vermont. For over 35 years, David and his wife, Lucy, have grown Butternut Mountain Farm into a company known for producing award-winning maple products, while building long-term relationships with other producers who share a vision of forest stewardship.
Our Organic Maple Sugar is made by quickly heating the syrup to 305 °F, which produces a very thick substance, almost like the consistency of fudge being poured. As it cools down, the product hardens up, and after cooling overnight, it goes through a hammer mill to achieve its sugar-crystal, delicious form. No additives or preservatives are used.
A message from David: “From soil to roots maple is what we know and invest in for ourselves and those with whom we share the title of sugarmaker. Maple is full time for us.”
This form of maple was first developed by Native Americans for its ease of storage and transport. Modern maple sugar is still prized for the same reasons. Its robust maple flavor, low moisture content, ease of storage and long shelf life make it an ideal ingredient for manufacturers of baked goods, meat products, cereals, and condiments - and it’s a sweet addition to any cook's kitchen. A natural alternative to cane sugar.
