Birch Hill Farm is proud to produce outstanding certified-organic maple syrup from sap gathered from the trees here on our farm in South Woodstock. In order to be certified we follow the requirements set down by the USDA National Organic Program, no synthetic fertilizers, herbicides, or pesticides can have been used within the three years preceding the “organic” designation. Our syrup is free from any preservatives or other additives
What About the Maple Trees?
A maple tree must be about 40 years old before it is considered a candidate for tapping. It takes about 40 gallons of sap to produce one gallon of syrup.
This is why it makes sense that an approved forest management plan is also required for organic certification. The trees are tapped with a primary objective of distributing the taps over as large an area as possible in order to maintain a healthy, vigorous sugar bush. Our forest is managed for long-term use.
