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 Bruce and Janet with lots of help from dedicated family and friends. The Chapell sugaring operation taps 2000 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. The maple sap is boiled down in a 4 foot wide by 12 foot long wood fired, forced air 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 late 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.
