Authentic Appalachia is a collective of sugarmakers, forest farmers, educators, researchers, truck drivers, marketing specialists, web designers, grant writers, visionaries, and volunteers from Central Appalachia. Central Appalachia is an important place to all of us. We are natives of Appalachia, newcomers who fell in love and decided to stay, or boomerangs— left a time or two to always return to this place we call "home". The land we call home supports the growth of native sugar, red, black, and silver maple trees that gift us “sugar water” or sap—the key ingredient for maple syrup. We are proud to share our maple syrup that is deeply rooted in family tradition and our regional heritage with you and your family.
TAPPED IN TRADITION
Authentic Appalachia maple syrup is a slow-craft and small-batch product of Appalachia that honors our regional heritage and sustains a beneficial relationship between the people and the forests of Appalachia. Every purchase of Authentic Appalachia maple syrup invests in the makers, their families, and the forests that support the growth of our sugarbushes where that oh-so-sweet sugar water runs every spring and keeps the region’s traditional heritage alive for future generations to enjoy.
