pure maple syrup
sourced from Ben's Sugar Shack
Ben has a long history with maple syrup. When he was five years old, he visited a maple harvesting operation in pre-school and was so excited that he began harvesting his own maple syrup with his dad the very next day. By the age of fifteen, Ben had won the Maple Producers Carlisle Trophy, given to the producer of the best syrup in New Hampshire. Today, Ben operates two sugar houses, where he produces his award-winning syrup for both personal and commercial uses and plans on expanding his business even further. If you are ever in New Hampshire during sugaring season, you can even go visit, taste the different grades, take tours of the sugar house and his operations, and try out his other maple products!
