About Tree Juice Maple Syrup

The Fairbairn family have been making maple syrup on their farm since the 1930s.

Beginning in 1998, Jake's brother, John, and his friend Jason built a wood shed and sap house, installed thousands of feet of sap line and 460 taps.

After a hiatus of 5 years, Jake Fairbairn and his friend Ryan Annetts cleaned up the sap house and created 'Tree Juice Maple Syrup' in 2012.

Remaining on the same family owned land, Tree Juice Maple Syrup has now expanded its production and installed a total of 1200 taps.

We usually begin tapping trees in mid-February and by the end of March are pulling them out. The maple sap travels down hill to the sap house, where it is filtered, steralized by a UV light and then boiled in our 3.5' x 10' wood fired evaporator.

We typically burn around 12 cords of wood (which comes from the farm, and helps manage a healthy forest). It typically takes 40 Gallons of maple sap to become one gallon of Tree Juice Maple Syrup.

In our first year, we created our Maple Syrup CSA (Community Supported Agriculture, whereby a customer pre-pays for a membership and receives a share of the syrup produced). In addition to becoming a CSA member, you can now buy Tree Juice Maple Syrup from our online store, our sugar shack shop (during boiling season), wholesale or through retail stores.
