March is Maple Month!
Fuller's Sugarhouse, located in the small, scenic town of Lancaster in northern New Hampshire among the mighty Presidential mountains, is full steam ahead for their 2021 season, ready to produce more of their award-winning pure maple products.
Care to guess how many gallons of maple sap Fuller's Sugarhouse boils each spring? 10,000 gallons? 50,000 gallons? 100,000 gallons? Nope, even more! Fuller’s Sugarhouse taps more than 26,000 trees and boils half a million gallons (wow!) of maple sap to produce 11,000 gallons of their pure NH maple syrup.
Established in 1972, the business is owned and operated by Dave and Patti Fuller. Dave first learned how to make maple syrup from his grandfather and loved it so much that he decided to make it a business. Fuller’s Sugarhouse is truly a family affair with the involvement of several generations of the Fuller family, including Dave’s brothers Ed and Russell, and his official taste testers (and grandsons) Isaac and Trever.
Fuller's Sugarhouse taps maple trees in three “sugar bushes” or “maple groves” in the Lancaster area. Sap from the trees is collected by a plastic tubing system and transported to their new state-of-the-art sugarhouse in Jefferson where it is boiled into their award-winning golden smooth maple syrup.
From there, drums of syrup are transported to their Lancaster facility, where it is packaged into bottles and jugs, and used to make maple candy, cream (butter), and sugar. All of Fuller’s Sugarhouse's maple products are sold in their Country Store and distributed to other retail locations.
