A Family Tradition
Sterling Valley Maple is a family owned maple producer. Located in Lewis County, NY, in the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains, three generations of maple producers tap thousands of trees every spring to produce pure maple syrup.
A Blend of Art and Science
In the spring producers drill a small hole in each tree to release the sap. A network of tubing brings the sap from thousands of trees to a collection point.
Boiling & Drawing Off
The sap is boiled in a wood-fired evaporator to remove water. The producer carefully monitors the density and removes the syrup from the heat when it is boiled to perfection.
The finished syrup is filtered to remove niter, an organic compound that forms during boiling, and then packaged while it is still hot to ensure freshness.
