Authentic Maple Syrup
Authentic maple syrup is what we at Beckwith Maples always give our customers. It is as authentic today as it was back in the early years when many have fond memories of a quieter, more relaxed time. When sap was collected from buckets by horse and bobsled in barrels and taken to the saphouse where it was boiled down . Native Americans were the first to discover the fact that sap from certain trees could be processed. Although there are no authenticated accounts of how this process was discovered there are legends. Undoubtedly these have changed over time, but it is likely this discovery was accidental.So what are you waiting for?

The process begins early in the spring, usually in Feb. when the days begin to warm above freezing and the nights are below freezing. It is at this time that the sap in the tree goes up the tree to begin to feed the leaves. It is the warm days and cold nights that create the right conditions for this to happen.
The end result is a pure product that is a result of many labor-intensive and time consuming hours. Although laborious to produce, the finished product is well worth the effort.
