Dohner's Maple CampLocally tapped maple syrup, maple sugar and candy

On our farm, making maple syrup is the winter crop in February and March. Sales continue throughout the year at the Market, our farm and several festivals in the area.

We started making pure maple syrup in 1983, as a hobby, using buckets and a wood fire to boil down the sugar sap from the maple trees. Now the operation has grown to a year-round business using modern methods and equipment to ensure a deliciously sweet, pure, syrup. We never add anything to the syrup; it is all from the trees.
