The Silloway Family has been sugaring since 1942 in Randolph Center, Vermont. Tradition pairs with the latest advancements in technology to produce the finest maple syrup and products from the healthiest trees. Our sap is boiled over a traditional wood-fired arch.
In 2014, a new sugarhouse was designed and built, set facing the south, with a narrow northern roof, and a large southern exposure to accommodate seventy solar panels. On a bright, sunny day in January, the numbers were climbing, showing the overall amount generated. On even a cold day, the system can output just over 15,000 watts. Averaging throughout the year, this energy supplies the sugarhouse needs, and about half of the power used on the family dairy farm, just down the road.
Family members have come and gone, with the sugaring operation always providing opportunity for hard work and good times together.
