Maple Syrup is a tradition seven
generations in the making on Goodell Family Farm. In 1825, Jonas
Goodell purchased the original 130 acre farmstead in Shalersville,
Ohio and established maple sugar making for the Goodells. Today,
we continue tapping trees, boiling syrup, and making maple
products on this same farm. The farm was honored in 1999 at
the Ohio State Fair as an Ohio Century Farm.
Today the major focus of the farm is dairying, supported by an intensive grazing program, but maple syrup has been produced since the beginning of the farm. Many maple delicacies were developed in recent years to offer a variety of products to the consumer.
The Goodellís employ many modern production methods to produce high quality maple syrup in a efficient method. The sugar bush includes 4,800 taps on a vacuum tubing system and utilizes reverse osmosis to remove up to 75% of the water before boiling. This speeds up the syrup making process and greatly reduces fuel usage. In 2008, Goodell Family Farmís maple syrup was certified 100% organic.
The maple syrup produced at the Goodellís has
received numerous awards on a local, state, and international
level. Most recently at the 2016 International Maple Meeting our
Golden-Delicate syrup received 2nd place!
