Greg Bockius began farming Christmas trees and sugaring in the 1980's, but it wasn't until he moved back to his childhood home 8 years ago, that he was able to become serious about his passion for farming.
Our maple syrup is 100% pure and single source, meaning that we do not buy syrup from other sugarmakers to combine with ours in order to fulfill large orders.
We are part of the NH Seal of Quality program, which entails a thorough inspection of our facility, operation, packaging materials and final product once per year by the NH Dept. of Agriculture.
We sell maple syrup and maple candy out of our barn store in Hopkinton seven days a week and certain Sunday's at the SoWa Boston Farmer's Market at 500 Harrison Ave in Boston from 10 am to 4 pm (May 5th and 19th, June 2nd, 16th and 30th, September 1st, 15th and 20th and October 13th).
Our Sugar House is open to the public during Maple Weekend in March. Thank you for visiting us this year; 2020 dates TBD.
We also have plenty of 2019 maple syrup in bulk ready to fill orders for corporate gifts, weddings and restaurants. Give us a call for more information!
As for our Christmas trees, each year Greg plants anywhere from 100 to 1000 seedlings. While a typical tree takes approximately 10 years to fully mature, Greg has been planting for the past 30 years, so you'll find trees at all different stages of growth.
In November, check back for dates and times open for Cut-Your-Own Christmas Trees; many people ask if they can tag a tree, unfortunately tagging a tree is not allowed. We provide hand-saws you can borrow.
We look forward to seeing you!
The Bockius Family: Greg, Lane, Amelia and Buckwild
