Osborne Family Maple

Welcome to Osborne Family Maple!  

We make pure Vermont maple syrup in the heart of the remote region of Vermont known as the “Northeast Kingdom.”  Our sugarhouse is located in the sparsely populated town of Ferdinand, where moose outnumber people three to one.

A Family Business  Since the late 1930s, four generations have patiently managed the land, resulting in the 4,000-tap sugarbush we have today.

Why Organic?  As certified organic producers, we manage our woods for biodiversity, in addition to sap production, to promote a healthy forest ecosystem that is more resilient to the threats posed by non-native pests and invasive plants. Annual inspections of our woods and sugarhouse ensure that all aspects of sap collection and syrup production meet, or exceed, the food safety requirements of organic certification.

Check out Our Web Specials  Our Maple Syrup Web Specials, seen below,  are designed to deliver the most syrup for the least shipping cost anywhere in the U.S. using USPS Flat-Rate Shipping boxes. Visit our Shop to choose from other options.  Please contact us for specialty items and custom orders.

We Provide Quality and Great Customer Service  We take great pride in our maple syrup. Only the finest batches of our single-source maple syrup make it into our hand-numbered private-label containers. We hope you enjoy it as much as we enjoy making it!

He was born on December 18, 1929, in Clinton, Massachusetts, to William H. and Marie (Lecomte) St. John. On October 24, 1953, he married Claire L. Ducharme in Willimansett, Massachusetts, and lived in Norfolk, Virginia, with his wife until being discharged from the Navy on February 27, 1954. He grew up spending time and working on local farms. He graduated from high school on June 13, 1947. He joined the Navy on April 27, 1950, and spent boot camp at Great Lakes Naval Training Center. He attended Aviation Structural Mechanic School at Naval Air Technical Training Command in Memphis, Tennessee, from July 1950 to February 1951, and graduated first in his class. He was then assigned to Navy squadron VP 44 in Norfolk. He attained the rating of U.S. Navy-aviation structural mechanic petty officer second class.

    • Northeast Kingdom Snow Blasters Trail Report 02/08/2017 Currently 34 degrees with light rain and a brisk se wind in Norton. Weatherman right on with this one as we got about 2-3 inches of snow, then a good coating of ice! No worries as that will protect our trails. Groomer rolls tonight after the cool down and Thursday to prep for the weekend. A large snow storm may miss us to the South, but hopefully will wiggle its way west. Trails and riding gonna be great for sure! SLOW DOWN and enjoy the ride!

    • A little insight of our operations: from Friday morning to Sunday night our volunteers groomed approximately 135 miles. This equals 22.5 hours of their weekend they spent in the middle of no where for the most part making sure everyone had the best trails possible sometimes until 12:30 am. That is sno-flake ridge runners entire trail system covered twice during peak riding times. We've got a passion for this sport and love to do it, so please keep this in mind. We are doing our best to keep the trails smooth 24/7. Volunteers make this sport happen, so thank you to ours!! ❄️❄️❄️
    • As of February 6, 2017 all trails are open and groomed.  We have been grooming every night except Wednesday night. Trails are all in good shape, even have 14 F so it is now good. Hope you get a chance to ride and enjoy the snow while we have it.
