A sugarbush nestled in the foothills of Vermont’s iconic mountain, The Couching Lion.

Today, many know our mountain as Camel’s Hump, but four hundred years ago, explorer Samuel de Champlain used “Le Lion Couchant,” or “Couching Lion” to describe Vermont’s second highest peak. We love the image of a lion couching, or resting, and looking over our sugar maples. Learn more about our stewardship practices and family sugaring history.

Hard work pays off…..

Why does our maple syrup taste so good? At Couching Lion Maple Sugar Farm, we are accustomed to hearing customers assert this syrup is far more flavorful, nuanced and delicious than their store bought variety. The secret is in the small batches, evaporated over a wood fired arch. Large producers use fuel oil to evaporate excess water from sap. Our wood fired syrup cooks longer with wood as a fuel source which creates an uncommonly delicious, buttery, caramelized flavor.

Sustainable Practices….

We care deeply about our sugarbush and the surrounding acreage and have taken steps to insure its health and productivity. The property is protected from future development through the Vermont Land Trust and managed through Vermont’s Current Use Program. We are enrolled in Audubon’s Bird Friendly Maple Project and take great measures to ensure migratory songbirds always have a place in our sugarbush! An important step toward supporting sound environmental practices is buying from bird friendly maple producers. Learn more below!


Maple Spiced Cabbage

Maple Spiced Cabbage This easy vegetable dish is a favorite on our Thanksgiving table, but also delicious year round. It’s spiced with warm cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves and lightly sweetened with maple and apples. The tart cranberries, onions and garlic offset with savory goodness. Enjoy! 2 tablespoons olive oil 1/2 teaspoon both salt and pepper…
