Tapping into our Second Season at Crown MapleSubmitted by Robb on February 16, 2012 - 4:22pm
The sap is running early this year and our field teams are working quickly to finish tapping as we enter our second maple syrup production season at Crown Maple Farm.
So far, more than 23,000 taps have been installed and we won’t stop until we reach 30,000 taps in place, making Crown Maple the leading maple syrup producer in New York. While we’re thrilled to have become one of New York’s largest, our primary focus continues to be producing the purest maple syrup on Earth.

Sustainable Forestry at Crown Maple FarmSubmitted by Robb on September 30, 2011 - 6:45pm
Conservation and sustainability. Two terms that get tossed around often enough. But at Crown Maple Farm, we take those words seriously. We’ve preserved more than 800 acres of forested uplands and we’re using sustainable forestry to bring you the purest maple syrup on Earth.
This Saturday, Oct. 1, we’re participating in an event called, “Agribusiness in the Harlem Valley: Conservation in Action,” by hosting a tour of Crown Maple Farm from 9:00-10:00 a.m.
