Hartshorn Sugarbush has been family-worked and owned for eight generations. This sugarbush is situated on a picturesque mountainside in the Mad River Valley. Due to the steep terrain, the Hartshorns must cope with avalanches, which frequently bury production lines. However, the Hartshorns credit the difficult terrain for their syrup’s superior flavor. The Hartshorns won the coveted Best of Show award at the Vermont Farm Show on the 100th anniversary of Vermont’s Maple Association, and they have accumulated hundreds of awards over the years.
Every year, Paul Hartshorn and his children tap 5,000 trees and produce roughly 1500 gallons of maple syrup. The family has implemented a modern pipeline network, vacuum system, and reverse osmosis system to increase harvesting efficiency, allowing sugarmakers to focus on their craft.
Adopt one of Paul Hartshorn's trees for a year and you'll receive an assortment of gourmet maple products produced at the Hartshorn sugarbush. Proceeds from adoptions support our partnering sugarmakers and fund research to protect future maple production. Adoption provides an opportunity for you to support talented craftsmen and protect the environment, while indulging in a sweet treat.
