Howles Maple Farm is a 4th generation maple syrup business with the 5th generation learning quickly.  Updates to our sugarhouse and equipment were made in 2016 including a sap tank holding room, computerized evaporator and new reverse osmosis machine and filter press.  We will be open for pancake and ham breakfast, tours, and samples (including a secret new release) both days.  Traditionally we offer maple candy, jelly, maple mustards, glazes, salad dressings, BBQ sauces, seasonings, a variety of nuts, cream, cotton candy, maple butter, maple milkshakes, sundaes, lemonade and more! In 2017 we added bourbon and rum barrel aged maple syrup and sauces as well as a new collection of maple beer as we get our toes wet in our new brewing venture; Riverside Brewing Company.  Please follow Howles Maple Farm on Facebook or email howlesmapleproducts@gmail.com with questions.
