The Sugarmaker's Companion is the comprehensive guide that small-and large-scale syrup producers have been waiting for in their quest to create a profitable business model. Author Michael Farrell documents the untapped potential of American forests and shows how sugaring can turn a substantial profit for farmers while providing tremendous enjoyment and satisfaction.

Farrell, sugarmaker and director of the Uihlein Forest at Cornell University, incorporates the wisdom of traditional sugarmaking with the value of modern technology (such as reverse-osmosis machines and vacuum tubing). His balanced view of the industry offers a realistic picture of how modern technology can be beneficial-economically and environmentally.

The first book of its kind, The Sugarmaker's Companion includes:

  • A focus on maple syrup as a healthy, local, sustainably produced alternative to corn syrup and other highly processed artificial sweeteners
  • Discussions about organic certification, sugarhouse registration, and the new international grading system
  • Information on marketing to create a profitable business model based on scale, interest, access and more
  • Detailed analyses of the economics of buying and selling sap
  • Information on ways to process and market other tree saps, including birch and walnut
  • Ways to enhance diversity in the sugarbush and interplant understory crops for value-added products, such as ginseng, goldenseal and mushrooms
  • An economic analysis of utilizing maple trees for syrup or sawtimber production.

In addition, readers and sugarmakers will learn plenty of practical, how-to skills, such as:

  • If, and on what scale, syrup production is right for them
  • How to find trees for tapping
  • The essentials of sap collection
  • The art and science of sugarmaking
  • How to build community through syrup production
  • Valuable information on ecological forest management and value-added products

Appealing to foresters, organic farmers with woodlands, homesteaders, preppers, permaculture enthusiasts, and, of course, sugarmakers, this book is applicable to a wide range of climates and regions, and is sure to change the conversation around syrup production and prove invaluable for both home-scale and commercial sugarmakers alike. This is a unique guide to making an integrated sugaring operation, interconnected to the whole-farm system, woodland and community.
