Our Family & Friends
The Mazzocato Maple Farm has been family owned & operated for over four years by husband and wife Mark & Kristi, along with their children, who will no doubt be taking part as well in the years to come. Our entire family has always supported our maple farming dream and we invite you to join our extended Mazzocato family by coming to visit us, and trying some of our 100% Pure Mazzocato Maple Syrup. Here at the Mazzocato Maple farm, we work in a co-op arrangement with the crew down at Shady Grove Maple Company in Woolwich, Ontario. Our long time friends and next door neighbours, the Roy family help out around the farm as well. We are also proud to shoutout our fellow Campbelville Maple Syrup Farmers over at Martin’s Sweet Farm ! We love our friends!
The Mazzocato Maple Farm originated in Mulmur, Ontario on a 10 acre woodlot. There were approximately 250 taps and pails that produced approximately 250 – 300 litres of finished syrup. The Maple Farm has since relocated to Campbellville, Ontario onto a 100 acre woodlot. The operation now uses vacuum lines to gather sap from approximately 1100 taps. The vacuum operation is much more efficient than the pails and many more taps will be added in the near future. With the use of an environmentally friendly wood fired evaporator and reverse osmosis technology, approximately 1500 litres of high quality pure maple syrup is made every season! In the future, we hope to expand our operations to an even larger scale!
Our syrup is heated, filtered, and bottled at temperatures above 180 degrees Fahrenheit. Our bottles are vacuum sealed to ensure freshness, and we use glass bottles so our customers can see the colour and clarity of our pure, delicious syrup.
It takes 40 litres of sap to produce 1 litre of finished syrup. Batches of 100-200 gallons of sap are boiled continuously for 10-16 hours. 100 gallons of sap requires approximately 1 face cord of firewood, depending on the type of wood and sugar content in the sap. Extremely long, consecutive days are required for about 2 months to harvest and refine our pure maple syrup.
Organic by Nature/Eco-cert
Pure maple syrup is made by boiling off the water from the sugar. There is nothing added or altered at any point, and only food grade containers and tools, mostly stainless steel and glass, are used to handle it. The colour and flavour of pure maple syrup is entirely dependent on the trees and soil in the local area. Lighter syrup is from earlier in the seasons harvest and the colour gets progressively darker as the season progresses.
