Welcome to Catskill Mountain Sugar House

Welcome to the home of our purely delicious maple syrup. Every drop is produced on our farms nestled in the beautiful Catskill Mountains of upstate New York. It's our family's pleasure to give everyone a new appreciation—or a reminder—of how good “real” maple syrup can be.

Our unique location in the Catskill Park provides our maple orchards with the clean air and pure water necessary for our trees to produce the purest maple sap. Our 800 acre main farm is sandwiched between the NYC Rondout Reservoir and The Sundown/Denman Mountain Wild Forest. We do not tap road-side trees. Our sugarbush locations and operating protocols allow organic certification by USDA and NOFA.

Our sugar bush improvements are modern and sanitary, including a few hundred miles of tubing to transport sap from our trees either directly to our sugarhouse or to stainless steel holding tanks in pump stations where the sap is trucked to our sugarhouse.

All of our maple syrup is produced in our award winning sugarhouse. All equipment used for syrup production is the most modern available. Our attention to every small detail during production results in what we believe to be the best tasting maple syrup available. We are not a packer of syrup produced by others.

There's a lot of hard work involved, as our son John can tell you, and the whole family pitches in. An Auburn University Ag Economics graduate putting his college degree to use, John is the in charge of the day-to-day details of running our farm. Older brother Jim (Owner of Garigliano Contracting LLC) works with us during the production season and is a top notch sugarmaker. Brother Joe (an accountant at a Big 4 firm is Chicago) has set up the inventory and internal control systems for the business. Brother Matthew (an engineering major at Auburn) helps with the mapping, design and layout of new areas to be tapped. Thirteen year old Mark’s first job in the summer of 2011 involved wire tying tubing to trellis wire and installing manifolds. It is truly a family business in every sense of the word.

If you are looking forward to enjoying maple syrup with best of class taste, purity, balance and density give our maple syrup a try.
