Maple Syrup // Gateway Farms // Bristol, VT
When it comes to an artisan operation, it doesn’t get more hand crafted than Gateway Farm. They tap the sap from trees on their property and for the sugaring operation even “Cut the trees from our property, milled the lumber on-site, and constructed the timber frame structure ourselves”. That is some Dick Proenneke level commitment and all the effort translates into one of the best pure representations of Maple Syrup in the US of A. Douse your next short stack in this stuff, close your eyes and you’ll be transported to a dewy morning in Bristol, Vermont.
