Our Vision and Mission

We believe in diversity! Diversity of beliefs, cultures, and opinions makes the world a better place to live, work, and play. Biological diversity is literally what allows us to survive. When we founded The Forest Farmers, our vision was to use our land for the greatest diversity of plants, animals, and sustainably harvested products as possible. Just as a diversity of species leads to a healthier forest and the plants and animals that live there, diversity of foods leads to healthier and happier people who get to cook with and enjoy the bounty of nature.

Our mission is to sustainably harvest the greatest diversity of tree saps and other wild foods from our woodlands for adventurous chefs and those who simply love to eat. We created New Leaf Tree Syrups as our signature product line to intentionally focus on all of the tree species capable of producing sweet and nutritious saps and syrups.

One of our overarching goals is to protect and improve our vital natural resources for current and future generations. Proper forest stewardship is essential to our mission and we believe that sustainable harvesting of tree saps and other wild foods is one of the best ways to ensure long-term viability of our forest resources.
