You can taste the difference. Literally.
Our Maple Syrup is single-sourced from the sugar woods of Golden Dog Farm, just down the road from Smugglers' Notch.
It's wood-fired in small batches, and is never blended or infused. The trees are the artisans here, and we don't do anything to change what the trees and the terroir provide.
Is it really that good? Dewey describes it as being like a belly rub from the inside.
We love our dogs, past and present, and we have dedicated maple trees as memorials to two of our Goldens that are no longer with us.
Both Addy and Buddy have trees that are memorials to them - trees that we bucket tapped this past winter to make maple syrup. (Don't worry Kate, we'll do one for you this winter.)
You can now adopt and dedicate a maple tree on Golden Dog Farm as well - it's one sweet way to memorialize one of your beloved pups!
Queen Bee Becca wanted to do something for the people of Ukraine. So she painted her hives in combinations of sky blue and yellow. The hives are named: Hope, Joy, Unity, Peace, Love and Strength. The hives are available for sponsorship (you get honey and updates, and the proceeds go to Ukraine via CARE) And we’re also planting 25,000 sunflowers, perfect for the bees and a visual symbol of solidarity with the people of Ukraine.
Welcome to the Worple family farm in the Green Mountains of Vermont. Producing organic maple syrup, honey, fruit, berries and nuts. Maple Syrup was the first product we produced on the farm (Spring 2021). Honey followed this past summer. The crafting (really, more of a naive first attempt) of the 2021 vintage of white, rosé and red wines is now underway. Time, luck and the gods of fermentation will determine if they ever make a more public appearance .
A “happy” of Golden Retrievers in the family inspired the Golden Dog Farm name - currently home to Boo, Mar, Dewey, Uncle Lenny and counting.
What is a "happy?" It's the term we've coined as the collective noun for a group of Goldens - like a "rhumba" of rattlesnakes, a "murder" of crows, or a "gaggle" of geese.
Our philosophy? Happiness is Golden.

At the end of this maple syrup "provenance-focused positioning exercise," I wondered if we could get even more granular? Could we make and market a maple syrup from a single tree?
Our friends and family wonder how, and why, we so dramatically changed the course of our lives. Leaving the comfort, support and familiarity of friends and family in Cincinnati to end up on a farm in rural Vermont (to call it rural Vermont is admittedly a bit redundant) where we basically knew no one.
Well, it's complicated.
