We are proud to be family owned and operated. After lying dormant for several decades, our sugarbush was reactivated in 2005. Since then, our family has reconvened in Vermont from points across the country for the common goal of harvesting our “liquid gold.”
We embrace the myriad challenges involved in producing syrup in spring and maintaining infrastructure throughout the other seasons. Unpredictably difficult, and at times wildly euphoric, the maple sugaring business has proven to be a gold mine for family relations.
It is also deeply satisfying to participate in a continuum of agriculture that stretches back well before Europeans colonized North America. Today, when wilderness is constantly threatened, the sanctity of the forest endures.
Alchemists of antiquity engaged in a timeless quest to understand the world’s elemental secrets and transform life in the process. At Backwoods Alchemy, we believe those are fine traditions to carry us forward into the 21st century.
