Producers who tend maple forests rarely used pesticides and fertilizer. So what you consume in Pure Maple is what the tree has produced naturally.

Maple has different flavors reflecting a unique combination of plant, growing location and processing artistry. All of this is there to enjoy each time you consume a Pure Maple

Buy Local: Buying local means you are supporting New York business, a community, and maybe your neighbor. It means that you can determine the conditions of production and where ingredients come from, if you want to. Buying local contributes to food security and keeps your money closer to home.
Sustainable Forestry: Forests naturally filter our water supply. They store carbon, thus combating global warming. They provide habitat for many plants and animals, helping to preserve biodiversity. Maple sugaring allows you to appreciate a small part of the value of the forest as part of your daily meals while helping to sustain this natural resource.
