About Dutch Hill Maple
Our founder, Dave Williams, breathed life into DHM when he tapped 15 maple trees in his backyard in 1968. He started out carrying buckets of sap through the woods to his first boiling pan, where he boiled the sap down to maple syrup. And eventually, our first sugar house was built.
Now more than 50 years later, quite a bit has changed. Dave, along with his son and business partner Nathan, manage the DHM sugarbush of over 7,500 taps. Thankfully, there have been advances in technology over the years. We no longer primarily use buckets (although we do have a few for fun), but instead use a tubing system as well as a vacuum pump and reverse osmosis.
Nathan, with his wife Cristy and baby girl Kinslee, have worked to grow the family business by adding more taps, creating more maple products and providing more opportunities to visit and learn about pure maple syrup production!
