Hello and thank you for visiting with us here at Tree of Life Maple Farm, a rural organic maple farm located in the mountains of Northwestern Maine. Our beautiful sugarbush is situated to the western side of Boundary Bald Mountain, one of the regions highest mountains, just a few miles from the Canadian border. Our trees are truly situated in some of Maine's wildlands; at over 4 miles from the nearest paved road, it is land that abounds with clear mountain springs, babbling brooks, moose, deer, and bear.
This beautiful place is where my wife Anna and I, and our four children (Caleb, Joshua, Ariel, and James) are so blessed to work and we want you, our customers, to know that you're purchasing products from a family farm that is here to answer your questions and listen to your requests.
Our sugar house was constructed with efficiency, simplicity, and cleanliness in mind. All of our new equipment is constructed of stainless steel or other food grade materials and extra attention to detail has been given to ensure that we are producing syrup that is handled and produced in a way you can feel good about!
Maple Syrup is just Maple Syrup isn't it?
Well yes and no! While it's obvious that all maple syrup has some common attributes, its production and handling processes can vary rather significantly. Tree Of Life Maple Farm is Organic Certified by MOFGA (Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Assoc.) and that means that we are held to a higher standard. All our harvesting and processing equipment is comprised of either food grade materials or stainless steel, and undesirable materials like galvanized storage containers, and non-organic processing agents are not used. Our facilities and woods are inspected yearly and our cleaning processes utilize Organically approved agents and protocols.
In addition to being Organic Certified, we at Tree Of Life Maple Farm attempt to go the extra mile and strive to produce and offer some of the best flavored syrup available combined with excellent customer service and satisfaction. To ensure that our syrup has a great flavor we regularly taste each batch and eliminate syrup from our lineup that just doesn't meet our standards. Our non-blended commitment means that we do not combine or blend off flavored syrup that doesn't meet our standard with other syrup. Could we? Yes, of course. But we would rather know that what we are providing to our customers is some of the best there is! We also almost exclusively use stainless steel barrels for storing our syrup. This is an expensive investment but there is no better way to store syrup and preserve its flavor and integrity.
We also want to take this opportunity to give thanks to God for all He has done and for allowing us to do this. We are so grateful to be able to do what we do and when we look back at how it all came about, it truly is a miracle in the making! But this is just one of our many blessings: we have health and strength, beautiful kids, and most importantly, forgiveness and eternal life through God's Son – The Lord Jesus Christ! We want you to know that God loves you too and His gift of forgiveness and peace with God is for everyone! And it is this gift of peace with God that I pray you'll receive for yourself! Please feel free to contact us about our products, scheduling a visit, or even to talk about God's free gift – we're here for you!
We wish you the best and hope you enjoy our maple products!
God Bless from all of us at Tree of Life Maple Farm!
Jim, Anna, and Family
