There's organic sweetness in every drop of Crown Maple's groups program packages. Tour the country's most advanced maple syrup facility, and taste why Crown Maple's certified organic syrup has been called quite possibly the purest on earth and featured on both The Martha Stewart Show and NBC's morning show Today.
Groups of 20 or more are welcomed as part of our Groups Culinary Tour Program.
A culinary maple group leader traces the miles-long journey the raw maple sap travels in a day as it makes its way from forest to barrel, all without exposure to the outside elements. Groups see the full state-of-the-art facility, learn first-hand about the unique variables and artisanal practices that make pure maple syrup one of the earth's most precious natural products and how Crown Maple produces a maple that's in high demand from internationally acclaimed chefs like Thomas Keller and Tom Colicchio.
Each tour culminates in a guided three-stage tasting in newly designed tasting room which offers a full view into Crown Maple's hand bottling and sugar making operations.
Enjoy a farm fresh meal or dessert designed and prepared especially for you by Crown Maple's Culinary Institute of America chef, featuring mouth-watering original recipes. Meet the chef and learn about The Hudson Valley's emerging reputation as a top culinary destination. Optional walks among the maple groves and farm garden, cooking demos and nature talks are available.
Take home freshly bottled syrup and other delicious treats from the eclectic farm stand shop, featuring bounty from farms and chefs all over The Hudson Valley. Crown Maple's forest panorama at Madava Farms is a beautiful backdrop for an active and memorable group experience that is a highlight of every excursion.
