SOUTH FACE FARM OF ASHFIELD, MASSACHUSETTS
This is one of our favorite maple syrups from Massachusetts.
Located in Ashfield, Massachuseets, South Face Farm sits on a south-facing hillside, which gives them the most desired location for their stand of sugar maple trees, Christmas trees, mixed hardwoods, and the occasional giant zucchini. This farmland has been producing maple syrup for over 150 years, and some of the huge maples along the road are probably that old. The present sugarhouse, built in 1952, is the third sugarhouse on the property that they know of.
