Our Family Farm
Moose Mountain Maple is the new name for a very old tradition in the Butler family. While many things have changed, including becoming certified organic in 2009, boiling the syrup over a wood fire remains a tradition to this day. Each year the farm uses about 30 cords of firewood to boil sap from over 20,000 maple trees!
In 2009, we purchased 154 wooded acres adjacent to our family farm and in 2016, our brother and cousins purchased two additional adjacent wood lots. All the sap is sent to the same sugar house, and together the farm is managing over 500 acres of certified organic sugar woods, and boiling over 20,000 maple tree’s sap!
Moose Mountain Maple is part of a larger family run farm that includes an organic dairy component. With the help of his sons, William’s father milks 55 organic dairy twice a day. The milk is sent to Organic Valley.
