As you enjoy your Thanksgiving feast — hopefully featuring some of Fuller’s Sugarhouse’s delicious maple recipes — have you thought about how maple syrup came to be? Native American people were the first to discover sinzibuckwud, the Algonquin word for maple syrup that means “drawn from wood.” There are many legends about how maple syrup was discovered, but it was likely by accident: either a pot was left under a broken maple tree branch and the sap later boiled into syrup while cooking, or a knife or axe was thrown into a maple tree and sap was found dripping out from the gash where the tool had cut the tree, or perhaps the Native people imitated the squirrels nibbling on maple twigs. The Native Americans shared their maple sugaring know-how with early settlers in the Northeast and Canada, and soon they were producing their own maple sugar.

At Fuller’s Sugarhouse, we are thankful to those early maple producers for discovering this special gift from the maple tree.

Fuller’s Sugarhouse to Expand Maple Syrup Production 

Fuller’s Sugarhouse will be expanding its maple production as a result of its successful bid on a 15-year maple tapping lease on up to 723 acres within the 10,000-plus-acre Randolph Community Forest. “We’re very excited and pleased that the Randolph Forest Commission decided to entrust this new venture to us. We’ll work hard not to disappoint the Commissioners, townspeople, and everyone who made this locally controlled community asset a reality,” said Dave Fuller.

Fuller’s Sugarhouse will add 27,000 taps on this land and grow to 50,000 taps over time. When completed, this project will double, even triple, Fuller’s Sugarhouse maple syrup production. “This project will enable us to continue to ensure that we provide our customers with high quality, New Hampshire made maple syrup,” said Dave. “Our goal is to start building after the spring and be ready for the 2017 sugaring season.” Initially, all of the maple syrup produced from this new operation will be processed and packaged in the Fuller’s Lancaster sugarhouse; there are plans to build a new, state-of-the-art sugarhouse closer to the Randolph Community Forest.
