|Wildwoods Maple Farm|
|Established in 1999|
Wildwoods Maple Farm began tapping trees in 2018. We have plans to build our own sugar shack and do our own boiling in the future. For now, we trade sap for syrup and sell sap to others to boil. We are a USDA Certified Organic farm. Our certificate can be downloaded here. If you would like to buy sap from us, please contact us. Sap price is $0.30/gallon which is based on a non-organic bulk syrup price of $2.50/lb picked-up. We do not yet do delivery. When we do delivery, the markup will be based off of an increase of $0.15/lb to the bulk syrup price. We use the Cornell Maple Calculators for our calculations.
