Honey, Maple Syrup and Vegetables from the Hillside
It’s hard to buy food that isn’t impacted by commercial farming pesticides and herbicides. Since clean food is important to us, we have been growing organic vegetables in our greenhouse, producing maple syrup, managing a bee yard and raising our own animals for several years.
We are now harvesting more than our family and friends need, and it’s time to share our honey, maple syrup and vegetables with the community. That is why we started Steinbock Farm.
We use a light touch when tapping our trees. We drill cleanly to the right depth and size and remove taps each year so trees can heal. We make our syrup the traditional way without removing water before boiling the sap. Also, we test for, and will not use, evaporators with lead welds.
We began this journey into clean, self-produced food with our 100-foot greenhouse in 2014. We now have over 50 raised beds ranging in size from 4'x8' to 6'x12'.
