Pure Canadian Maple Syrup

Syruping at Wallace
At Wallace Springs we practice environmentally sensitive standards, which means we will not over tap our trees or use vacuum to increase sap flow.  We do not use plastic pipeline, preferring the older style tap and bucket method.  We do not tap any trees in close proximity to roadways where lead from automobile exhaust and other toxic chemicals may have built up over the years. All material coming into contact with the trees and sap/syrup is either stainless steel or food grade plastic meaning you can be assured that there is there is no lead or lead solder in any of our processes. We do not use any chemicals or acids to clean our evaporators, preferring instead to use a little bit of elbow grease.  No de-foaming agents (animal, vegetable, or chemical) are used during boiling, instead foam is skimmed off with a stainless steel, mesh strainer. 

Our syrup is made "the true old fashioned way" by boiling from sap to syrup over a virgin wood fire (no used painted or treated wood or used tires or motor oil) as opposed to most syrup today which has the sap concentrated by reverse osmosis and a minimum of boiling over "who knows what" fueled heat to produce the syrup.  We believe that boiling un-concentrated sap to syrup a with wood fire gives the product far superior flavour and depth well worth the extra effort.  Taste it, and we think you will agree with us!  We also blend all of our syrup for the year and hence we have only one grade (a medium colour) with full flavour

Wallace Springs Pure Maple Syrup is available in  500 mL glass jar $12.00 and 1 L glass jar $22.00 - Farm gate only please.
