Maple Syrup

At Harding Hill Farm, we produce about 500 gallons of maple syrup every year at our sugarhouse. This family tradition is a great way to end the winter and begin our spring. The Webb Family has been making syrup for three generations and over 50 years, and our sugarhouse on NH Route 103 dates back to the 1920's.

Our maple sugaring operation has approximately 1,300 taps on 12 acres of forest. We use our own firewood to fuel the evaporator. On an average year we burn about 12 cords of wood. Did you know it takes about 40 gallons of sap to make 1 gallon of syrup? To help us reduce this 40 to 1 ratio, we use reverse osmosis technology to remove half of the water from our sap. This reduces the ratio to 20 gallons of sap for one gallon of syrup produced. We are able to reduce our energy use by using nearly half as much firewood, and it reduces our time spent in the sugarhouse.

When do we make syrup? Well, it is all up to Mother Nature. The ideal weather for sugar-making is warm days and below freezing nights. Our maple season usually starts around March 1st and ends by mid-April. We are always open for tours and maple sales when we are boiling.

You can purchase our maple syrup products all year directly from our Farm. We offer a variety of plastic and glass containers. Don't forget about our signature Lake Sunapee bottle, which makes a great giftPlease contact us for a full price list.
