Tree Juice Candy Cane Maple Syrup
Tree Juice Maple Syrup™ is made at Lazy Crazy Acres Farm. Nestled in the Drybrook Valley of the Catskills Mountains of New York, the Fairbairn family have owned and operated this 100+ acre farm since the 1930’s.
In 2012, Jake Fairbairn, Ryan Annetts and Rae Brundage resurrected the family’s sugar shack, which had been unused for eight years, and began making Tree Juice Maple Syrup™.
Around 8000 maple trees on the farm’s rolling hills are tapped each year. Miles of tubing gravity feed the sap to the sugar house where a wood fire evaporator turns the sap into sweet stuff.
They heat their 100% Pure Tree Juice Maple Syrup™ and add some organically grown peppermint leaves from the farm. It is then allowed to steep over night before being filtered and bottled, leaving a refreshing minty zing! (Not over powering, just a hint of mint).
It's delicious used the obvious way (pancakes and waffles), also fantastic in tea, coffee, hot chocolate, over ice cream and even cocktails!
