Steve Savage has been immersed in maple grove life since he was 15 years old. He started collecting sap in buckets on his grandfather, Gordon LaGrange’s farm. Gordon taught him the process of making maple syrup-from tapping the correct trees, to using wood for the boiling process. In 1986, Peaceful Valley Maple Farms was established. A new sap house was built in 2005 and in 2007, a restaurant was added to the sap house and store through the vision of Steve’s mother, Barbara Kirk. Steve continues the family tradition by sharing his love of sugaring with his son Stephen, who has taken on most of the boiling process for the past two years. Together, the Savage family has grown that passion into a successful family business.
Today, the farm includes nearly 25,000 taps across 400 acres. Sap is collected from 15 different locations throughout Fulton, Montgomery and Otsego Counties. The sap house includes a wood-fired evaporator, used for the production of maple syrup. In 2017 they installed a solar system to support their syrup operation. The Savage family is proud to say they have newer technology that is energy efficient including a reverse osmosis machine and steamway pan, but still finish their syrup the old fashioned way - with wood.
With generations of experience behind them, Steve and his wife, Jenny, now run Peaceful Valley Maple Farms with devotion for the craft of maple syrup.
Fire = Flavor
Just like Grandpa used to do, Peaceful Valley Maple Farms maple is produced with a wood-fired evaporator giving the syrup a deeper and sweeter taste. Wood-fired evaporators are the authentic way to produce maple syrup.
You can taste the difference from family-run, local, home-grown and handcrafted maple syrup. Peaceful Valley Maple Farms syrup is not just crafted with fire, but it burns with passion as well.
A passion for authenticity, a passion for craft, a passion for taste. If you care about the products you use and want the best possible flavor choose Peaceful Valley Maple Farms Pure New York Maple Syrup.
In early Spring if you see the billowing smoke at the sap house, it is a sign that the boiling process has begun. This is an exciting time of year for the Savage family because they will soon be able to enjoy the fruits of their labor - 100% pure New York Maple Syrup.
With nearly 25,000 maple taps and growing, decades of hands-on, hearts-in experience, a dedicated combination of time-honored craft and newest technology, Peaceful Valley Maple Farms is your hometown, local, family-friendly sugar house and maple restaurant.
