Why Choose Sweet Abby's Maple Syrup?
We like to think Sweet Abby's maple syrup is better than the other maple syrups on the market.
Single-source maple syrup
Sweet Abby's maple syrup is derived entirely from sap from our own Robbin's Mountain maple trees. Much of the maple syrup on the market today is derived from third parties- from the farmer buying sap from his neighbor to the large bottling company blending syrup from many different sources. There is no way to ensure the quality of syrup derived from third party means. When you buy Sweet Abby's syrup you get 100% pure, unadulterated maple goodness from our trees.
Ideal location & conditions
Our maple trees grow on the north side of Robbin's Mountain in Bolton, Vermont. Given this exposure our maple trees are still producing high quality sap when other sugar houses have already shut down for the season. Later season sap equates to darker more robust flavored syrup that contains higher levels of beneficial antioxidants than lighter early season syrup.
Sustainably-managed, organic maple trees
Sweet Abby's is in full compliance with the National Organic Standards Board and Vermont Organic Farmers guidelines on sustainability and organic practices. We consider our trees, the forest and the ecosystem in all of our harvesting and production practices, and take pride in knowing our syrup is as pure as possible.
Sweet Abby's maple syrup production begins and ends on Robbin's Mountain - 500 acres of conserved land in Bolton, Vermont. Robbin's Mountain is our home; where we live, work and raise our family.
Sweet Abby's unique same-day production process ensures our customers receive the purest, most delicious maple syrup on the market.
Maple sap has a short shelf life and can quickly deteriorate in quality. Our sap is collected in stainless steel holding tanks in a climate controlled building and converted into maple syrup on the same day to ensure it is fresh, rich and delicious.
It's all in the details
We understand the methods and equipment used in maple syrup production are just as important as sap quality. That's why we're meticulous about the production process. We use only the highest quality equipment and materials and clean everything thoroughly each day with Mike overseeing the entire process from start to finish.
Only glass bottles
Just like the honey found in Egyptian tombs, it is said that properly stored maple syrup can last forever. However, after a relatively short amount of time, plastic and metal containers can leach into the syrup, ruining its taste and quality.* Glass bottling under proper conditions ensures our maple syrup can stay pure and delicious until the last drop**

**Maple syrup can last indefinitely if it's refrigerated after opening, the cap is sealed tightly and no contaminants or foreign particles are introduced into the bottle.
Our maple syrup is USDA accredited and certified by the Northeast Organic Farming Association of Vermont. No chemicals or pesticides are ever used in our forests or maple syrup production process.
