pure maple syrup FAMILY OWNED & OPERATED

A little about...



Circle Back Farm is Gene and Beth DeGayner -  A couple on a crusade to bring more natural sweetness to the world!

Thanks to the help of our kids and friends, we were able to tap about 1,400 trees in 2017.  Despite the short, warm season, we made 350 gallons of maple syrup.  WE ARE  SOLD OUT FOR 2017, EXCEPT FOR A SMALL QUANTITY AVAILABLE FOR CUSTOM BOTTLING.  PLEASE CONTACT US IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN THAT, AND ALSO LET US KNOW IF YOU WANT US TO RESERVE SYRUP FOR YOU.  We will be ready to ship orders again beginning in May, 2018.

The woods where this syrup originates is a diverse northern hardwoods ecosystem in Michigan's beautiful Upper Peninsula. Our land has been in the family for over 75 years, and by running our taps on vacuum, with a small-diameter drill bit and disposable taps, we minimize any damage to our trees. The sap is boiled on a high-efficiency wood-fired evaporator with sustainably-harvested fuel. We use a state-of-the-art filtering system to bring you crystal-clear syrup that is 100% pure. 


Maple syrup is not just for pancakes! Instead of sugar, try a little pure maple syrup to sweeten coffee or tea, yogurt or fruit. Maple adds a subtle layer of flavor to many foods, from appetizers, to cocktails, to desserts.
