Bureau’s Sugarhouse

Chester, Connecticut

Maple sugaring has been in our families for over five generations, with its origins in Vermont and Quebec, Canada. Our Maple Kettle Korn story begins with construction of our Maple Sugarhouse in the fall of 1992. We purchased a used 2’x6′ evaporator and buckets at auction and set our 300 taps the following spring. The following years our operation grew to 700 taps and a new 2½’x8′ evaporator with forced draft. It did not take long for us to develop a reputation for great tasting syrup. We even supplied our relatives in Vermont and Canada with our syrup. We soon developed our own maple products such as Maple Sugar, Maple Jelly, Maple Cream, Maple Candy and even our own Maple Vinegar from scratch.
