Pancakes and French Toast are great to begin with, but drizzling pure maple syrup over the top makes them that much better. Since Rhode Island isn’t known for producing the sweet treat, we’ve looked to New York to help us deliver an even better breakfast.
Mountain Winds Farm is a 140 acre farm nestled in the hills of Berne, NY and has been owned by the Grippin family since 1961. Today, second generation – Randy Grippin and his family are running the farm. Randy started his maple syrup production in 2005 with 50 pails and it has grown to a production with 50,000 feet of pipeline and 1,300 taps, with the capacity to make 500 gallons of syrup each spring. Although his production has grown, he still maintains the independence of a small, family owned farm, teaching his children the ways of making premium maple syrup. Each batch is made by hand with his wood-fired evaporator, and his farm is 100% hormone, pesticide, antibiotic and GMO free.
