A Century Old Maple Syrup Tradition
Buck Family Maple began over 25 years ago with a large roasting pan and two maple trees in the yard of our Waterbury, Vermont home. Today, we make syrup from 2000 trees on our Washington, Vermont maple farm that has produced maple syrup since the 19th century.
As we continue the maple sugaring history on our land, we hold a special place in our hearts and minds for the people who cared for this land long before us. Without their care and thoughts of future generations, the trees they tapped all those years ago would not be part of our forest today.
Sustainability in the 21st Century
As we plan for the future, our descendants are very much in our thoughts. Operating our sugaring business is deeply tied to being naturally sustainable and renewable. This is why we keep a watchful eye on all of the trees, the soil, the water, and the precious wildlife that make our woods their home.
As we have grown, we have made many time-saving improvements, from sap gathering and storage to syrup production and canning. But we have never strayed from our family’s personal commitment to the environment at all levels of maple syrup making.
