Why Organic?

We are sometimes asked "Isn't all maple syrup organically produced?" Surprisingly, the answer is "No". As part of the Certification process, we keep detailed records of all materials used either in the sugarbush itself, or in the production and packaging of the syrup.

What's New in 2010

Sugaring came early in 2010, matching a trend that we have noticed for many years of earlier and earlier sap flow. We were tapped early (by Feb 22), and were able to collect sap from those early runs. It’s fortunate that we did, because the season sort of petered out as we got further and further into March, the normal peak sugaring time.  In spite of the odd season, syrup quality was good and we ended up with a decent year.

What's new at BHF, February, 2000

Pony with kidsAlthough night time air temperatures still are making it down into the single digits, teens and twenties, the sun gets higher in the sky every day and the days get longer as spring approaches the Berkshires. We still have 2+ feet of beautiful powder snow all over the fields and in the woods: just perfect for snow shoeing or X-C skiing.
