Nothing But Pure Vermont Maple Syrup Will Do
At Greatest Blaze & Co., we love pure Vermont Maple Syrup. As far as we’re concerned there is no substitute. Stuff found in most grocery stores is artificial sugary glop. Unacceptable. After tasting many different syrups — and being repeatedly disappointed — we set out to find the gold standard for maple syrup.
We found a small family farm in Shaftsbury, VT that was making the best syrup we had ever tasted run by two of the nicest people we have ever met.
Scott and Erin McEnaney’s maple syrup is their passion and a labor of love. Both work full-time jobs and raise two beautiful and vibrant children (Eli 7 and Dana 5). A few years back they bought this small 40-acre farm and with a lot of blood, sweat and tears made it into something quite special. Little by little, they chipped away and made improvements to all the barns and buildings and built a wonderful syrup works.
Did you know that it takes forty gallons of sap to make just one gallon of pure Vermont Maple Syrup?
Scott and Erin start the process not long after Christmas. The trees get tapped, the lines are put up and then you make sure all the parts and components of the boiling pan/stove are clean and working properly. When Mother Nature is ready the sap starts flowing and the magic begins. Fast forward to his time of year and they are busy gathering sap and boiling it down into pure Vermont Maple Syrup.
The sugarhouse is a great place to hang when a boil is going. The warmth of the fire and the steam of the cooking sap are indeed very inviting. Scott and Erin are always having family and friends over to enjoy the fun. If you’ve never had syrup fresh out of the filter, or a hot dog cooked in sap you don’t know what you are missing.
