fair and sustainable methods respecting farmers, producers,
employees, the land and our communities.
Maple Valley, a pioneer in organic and fair practices for maple production, became a cooperative in 2007 and continues to produce 100% pure and organically produced maple products. This means not only offering you a non-artificial, additive and preservative free product with NO FORMALDEHYDE, but also bringing you a socially responsible commodity.
Great effort has gone into selecting responsible, organically certified woodland farmers whose standards represent stewardship to the environment and our planet.
Our main processing plant and offices are in Cashton Wisconsin. Our farmer base encompasses the Great Lakes and the Appalachian region of the United States. We believe in family scale farming, fair wages for producers and employees, transparency, accountability and sustainable fair business practices.
Good Business Practices
The only way for us to be in business is to offer you QUALITY. We do this by selecting those maple producers who pay great attention to the fine science of making maple syrup. When mother natures says it’s time to let the sap flow, a producer may spend weeks nonstop collecting, dumping, filtering and boiling the sap, measuring brix (sugar) content, rotating pans, checking and double checking temperature, draining off different grades, cleaning equipment, packaging syrup into containers, and many other tasks! The result for you is a very high value product that we feel deserves a fair price for both the producer and the user!
Maple Valley considers every maple farmer and maple coop we do business with as an important alliance and take our pledge to give a sustainable pay price to our farmers very seriously. Every year we meet with our maple coop and individual farmers to determine a fair price. Because of this close relationship with our farmers, we are able to create high standards of quality and consistency. We hope you appreciate them as much as we do!
