Welcome to Our Site
Jaret and I established Deer Ridge Maple in 2004 but the love of producing maple syrup began when Jaret was just a child. At the age of 6, Jaret began tapping the trees around his family home and carting the sap on his sled to his neighbor Prescott Kelley. After selling his sap for years, he made the shift to boiling the sap himself. After many years of boiling outside, Jaret and his father Reg built their first sugarhouse in 1992. In 2004, we upgraded to our current Handicap Accessible Sugarhouse that utilizes technology to increase our efficiency. We currently tap 3000 trees on our own 32 acres in Derby.
Our current operation is dedicated to Jaret's dad, who passed away in 2001 from diabetes. We enjoy sharing our love of maple sugaring and welcome visitors anytime of year. Just give us a call at (802) 766-5447, so we can make sure someone will be home to greet you.
