Diversity is Sweet!

We see the forest for all the trees.

We don’t tap just the maples. At The Forest Farmers, we appreciate the value (and deliciousness) of a rich forest full of a wide variety of tree species. Our approach provides greater biodiversity and healthier forests while putting an amazing array of syrups on your table. Culinary adventures await when you choose New LeafTM tree syrups, carefully crafted from the pure sap of maple, birch, beech, walnut, or another rare tree species!
