Continuously Overworked

A native Vermonter, Nico has worked his entire life at Rock Maple. The season is long, but Nico works tirelessly to earn his off-season naps.

Producing 100% pure and all-natural maple syrup isn’t just about boiling sap into syrup – it’s an artisan tradition, combining old-timer’s wisdom and the newest techniques.
