Ian, Caitlin and Blake Ackermann are the owners of the Ackermann Maple Farm in Cabot, Vermont. Photographed in Sanibel Island, Florida. Jan 19, 2018. Paul Goldfinger ©

The Ackermanns are from a small Vermont town, Cabot.   In the last 5 years, their maple farm has grown to 148 acres and 10,000 maple trees.  In the winter they manage to get away from their busy business to sell their maple syrups at the farmers’markets in southwest Florida.  3 months ago their first child Blake was born.

They will return to Cabot in a few days to get ready to tap the trees and collect the sap in early spring.   The next step is to boil the sap with a wood fired evaporator.  Later the syrup is aged in whiskey, bourbon and rum barrels.

This is their web site:    link to the Ackermann’s site

They offer free shipping on orders over $50.00
