Bakers Maple was born in 1982 when Reed Baker
started out with a small pan over a wood fire and 75 buckets. From the
first year of production with just 50 gallons of maple syrup to the
present production level of over 2000 gallons per season, Bakers Maple
has expanded and grown to meet the needs of our loyal customer base.
Baker’s Maple was then purchased by Brian and Melody Bush in July of
2017, and our products are now available in their physical store Upstate
Harvest in Bainbridge, NY as well as our online store for purchase across
the United States. Sap is collected locally each spring from thousands
of sugar maple trees over a 20 mile radius of woodlands. The sap is
collected daily and boiled down to syrup in their multiple pan
evaporator system that produces around 20 gallons of syrup per hour.
Once the syrup is made and filtered it is stored in stainless steel
drums to await bottling in our classical glassware or being turned
into some of our tasty maple products like our natural maple sugar
or our sweet homestyle granola!
