Forty to One is a small family-run business. We have been offering maple syrup for sale since 1990, when we first became members of the New Hampshire Maple Producers Association. Our customers tell us that our syrup is the best they've ever had. We're sure you'll agree.
The New Hampshire Department of Agriculture, and the New Hampshire Maple Producers Association have adopted the new International Grading Standards for maple syrup. These standards now include a description of taste with each grade, and the grade names have been changed. We now grade all of our syrup using these newly adopted standards.
New Hampshire gave us an open and mild winter, with very little snow. Unusual for us, but it meant that our tapping could be done this Spring without snowshoes. We wondered all winter what the warm and strange weather might do to our 2016 crop, but our trees came through again and we finished the season with an average production. We tapped a bit earlier than usual making our first syrup in February. Much of the sap this year had a lower than average sugar content and we boiled a bit slower than normal until we got familiar with our new evaporator, but we were still able to make some lovely Golden-Delicate Taste syrup early in the season. As the season progressed, we made some Amber-Rich Taste syrup until the weather warmed enough to darken the syrup to Dark-Robust Taste. All three of these grades are now available for sale.
Golden-Delicate Taste, and Amber-Rich Taste are available in both plastic and glass jugs, and Dark-Robust Taste is available in plastic jugs only. Click to our Order page if you wish to place an order, and we will have your syrup on the way to you as soon as possible. For our previous customers who do not use PayPal, please contact us at email@example.com with your order.
Late in the season this year, we were able to produce a small amount of cooking syrup, graded Very Dark-Strong Taste. We have not included it on our Order page but do have small quantities available for our local customers. As always local customers who wish to drop by and pick up their syrup should e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call at 603-859-1929 to be sure that we will be at home when they wish to come by.
