By far our most popular question, and a fun one to answer! This ratio is dependent on the percentage of sugar within the maple sap. It can take anywhere from 35-55 gallons of maple sap to make 1 gallon of maple syrup. During a typical seson, our average ratio will be just slightly more than 40 gallons of sap to gallon of syrup.
All of our maple syrup is graded using the USDA standards using a digital tool to measure light transmission. Each of the maple syrup grades provides a distinct flavor profile that allows our customers to select their preferred maple syrup. The maple syrup grades are: Grade A - Golden, Grade A - Amber, Grade A - Dark, and Grade A - Very Dark.
This is the third most popular question. The short answer is, it depends. We grade our maple syrup so that you find your favorite. The Grade A - Golden grade has a very bright and delicate maple flavor. The flavor then progresses as the grades get darker all the way to the Grade A - Very Dark, that has the most bold and robust maple flavor. If you’re not sure which is your favorite, start with the Grade A - Amber.
