2014 Innovation Award
Currently, only four per cent of Ontario's viable sugar bushes are tapped. Why so little, when the province imports millions of litres of maple syrup from Quebec and Vermont each year? Processing maple sap into syrup requires large amounts of labour and energy. For many farmers, it simply doesn't make sense. Shady Grove Maple Co. has the solution. It teams up with woodlot owners willing to install a pipeline system on their property. Come sugaring-off season, the company transports clients' sap to its high-efficiency, state-of-the-art facility and then splits the finished product 50/50. The arrangement means minimal work for woodlot owners and more Ontario syrup for your morning pancakes.
