A family tradition begun in the 1920’s of making maple products continues into its fourth generation in Bovina. Duane LaFever and sons Cody, Cullen and wife, Karen, tap maple trees, utilizing approx. 1800 taps each winter at their maple farm along the pristine Bramley Mtn. Brook. They have a new Sugar House and a new CDL 3 x 12 oil fired evaporator. All the taps gravity feed though a network of tubing into collection tanks inside the sugar house.
The syrup they produce at Maplewood Farm is 100% pure maple syrup. This of course means that their syrup is derived entirely from the concentration and heated treatment of tree sap from maple trees. As such, the syrup contains no additives, preservatives or other artificial sweeteners. In addition to being free of fat, additives and other harmful ingredients, pure Maple Syrup contains a number of naturally occurring minerals like calcium, potassium, manganese, magnesium, iron and vitamins like B2, B5, B6, niacin, biotin, and folic acid. As such, Maple Syrup can be an effective source of antioxidants known to help promote blood flow and prevent disease.
