Each spring maple sap is collected from Republic of Vermont's mountain sugarbush and boiled down into maple syrup with unique flavor and unrivaled quality. The high elevation of the maple trees combined with high quality of the soil produce unusually sweet sap which when boiled creates a rich maple syrup with a complex flavor and amazing aroma. Every drop of syrup is boiled, filtered and bottled by hand in Republic of Vermont’s family run mountain sugarhouse.

WHAT IS ORGANIC MAPLE SYRUP?
That's a question we get all the time and while it is true that all maple syrup is maple tree sap that’s been boiled down to syrup, there are several very important factors that set organic maple syrup apart.
The two largest pieces that are taken into account when certifying maple syrup as organic are forest management practices and food safety. Both of these elements combine to ensure that the certified organic maple syrup you buy has been produced in a manner that is not harmful to the forest ecosystem and is safe to consume.
Obviously, there is a lot that goes into producing maple syrup whether its conventional or organic, but organic producers invite an extra layer of scrutiny, effort, cost and documentation to ensure that the product the customer buys has been produced in a way that takes into account the effects we have on the forest ecosystem while also maintaining a clean food production facility and preventing contamination. There’s certainly nothing inherently wrong with conventional organic maple syrup, but the inspection and oversight of an organic operation brings the maple syrup production process out of the dark and assures the consumer that the product is safe and was produced responsibly.
