About me

Location Westford, New York, United States
Introduction Located in Otsego County, near historic Cooperstown, Breezie Maples Farm has been in existence since 1986. Althogh we have been making maple syrup since 1987, starting with seven taps on two trees, our operation has grown to over 15,000 taps on 175 acres of "sugarbush" maple trees. Up until 2008 our syrup was sold primarily in bulk to major bottlers in both the United States and Canada. We decided to sell locally at farmers markets and a few select gourmet retail stores and farm stands. We are fortunate to have been selected by Cornell University to parcipate in several research projets for both quality and quantity of the finished syrup product. We have also been approved for our second year as USDA Certified Organic and are currently the largest certified organic producer in New York State.
