Maple Syrup

The original sugaring operation was likely established in the early to mid 1800's. Since those early times two sugarhouses have been built and torn down. The third and latest sugarhouse was built by Bruce Chapell, 7th generation descendent in 1986.

This is truly a family operation run by Seth, Natalie and Bruce Chapell with lots of help from family and friends. The Chapell sugaring operation taps 2700 trees which are all on pipeline with a vacuum system that augments sap production. Today we tap some of the same trees our ancestors tapped nearly 100 years ago, as well as a second maple sugarbush owned by Seth and Natalie, only 2 miles away. The maple sap is boiled down in a state of the art 3.5 foot wide by 12 foot long wood fired, forced draft evaporator. Much of the maple syrup is canned right in the sugarhouse as it is being produced.

The exceptional flavor of our syrup is derived from steep, productive bedrock soils and healthy sugar maple trees found in our sugarbush along with our rapid processing of the maple sap into syrup.

We encourage visitors during early March to mid April to visit our sugarhouse to experience the sights, aroma and flavor of our award winning syrup and see how this pure and natural sweetener called maple syrup is produced.
