New for 2011: Natural, Organic New York Maple Syrup

We're glad to announce the availability of New York State Maple Syrup this year from Circle C Maple Farm.

Circle C is nestled in the Shawangunks Mountains — "The Gunks." Joseph and Cathy Cicero are the owners and maple producers. Joe has been a member of the NY State Maple Producers Association since 1993.

For 18 years, Joe and Cathy produced syrup exclusively for their family. In 2010, they offered their syrup for the first time to CSAs, including Southside CSA, just across the Williamsburg Bridge. This year, the Ciceros expanded their production, and are offering syrup to restaurants and more CSAs in Brooklyn. (Grand Street CSA would be their first offering in Manhattan!)

This Maple syrup is all natural, organically processed from a family-owned farm in NY State.

Circle C offers both Grades A and B syrup (Grade A has a lighter color and milder flavor) in half-gallon ($30), quart ($20), and pint ($12) containers.

CSA Members can order online here: goo.gl/hPNmj

We'll be accepting payments at our first vegetable distribution on May 31 (and will hopefully have some samples to taste). Syrup will be available only once, at our second distribution on June 7.
