HOW IT ALL BEGAN
Crown Maple was established in 2010 in New York’s Hudson Valley at Madava Farms, an 800-acre organic family farm owned by Robb & Lydia Turner and named after their two daughters, Madeline and Ava.
The story of Crown Maple begins with Robb and Lydia Turner, and their desire to find a retreat for their family. Their search brought them to New York’s Hudson Valley, which Robb had fallen in love with during his time at West Point. The Turner family found the perfect cabin with a wide range of geography and a phenomenal view at the top of a mountain.
Robb did not set out to become the preeminent maple producer. Having grown up on a farm, Robb became inspired by the opportunity to create a higher quality maple. This inspiration sparked the passion that created a new maple standard, Crown Maple.
Robb leveraged his expertise in power and energy, becoming resourceful with science while respecting the traditions of maple sugaring. He learned about the essential technology needed to purify & preserve maple sap in its most natural form. Then, Robb connected his industry expertise to the maple industry, creating an unparalleled state-of-the-art production process to deliver superior quality in maple.
From Lydia’s kitchen emerged the
greatest realization about the versatility
of pure maple as one of the healthiest, most natural, and most sophisticated sweeteners. As a scratch-chef working from her kitchen, Lydia discovered the unparalleled flavor, the layers of
sweet & savory, the depth of character and the endless possibilities that maple provides.
Today, Crown Maple proudly showcases the exceptional versatility of maple in
culinary, baking, topping, and beverage applications. We invite you to gather around the
table and explore the unique & distinctive selection of Crown Maple products, each exceptionally crafted by pairing the best nature has to offer® with artisan craftsmanship
