Maple Syrup!

014Once again I have stocked the store with some delicious Maple Syrup from Hedmark’s Mape Ridge.  I have some new sizes and bottles available this year for your own personal use or a fantastic gift to give.


Fred Hedmark shared with me his ‘Wisconsin Maple Syrup Producer’s Association Maple Syrup Judge Score Sheet.”  Here are some of the scores he recieved.

Density – Highest Score 15 pts: 15 (66-2 Brix)

Clarity – Highest Score 10 pts:  10 (Crystal clear and clean)

FLAVOR – Highest Score 45 pts;  45(Good characteristic maple flavor)

COLOR – Highest Score 10 pts:  10 (Grade as color designated on grade sticker)

RETAIL CONTAINER – Highest Score 10 pts):  10 (Attractive, clean industry approved maple syrup container, which meets WDATCP requirements)

LABEL – Highest Sxcore 10 pts) – 10 (Meets WDATCP requirements)

For a total Score of 100 which puts Hedmark’s Maple Ridge into the Blue Ribbon Judging Class. 

Hedmark’s was also mentioned in the Wisconsin Maple News, Volume 2, Issue 1 in June 2010.  Here’s part of what was said:016

2010 Maple Syrup Judging Results

Submitted by Barry Stockwell

We had a lot of great tasting syrup submitted again this year at the Sat,, May 8, 2010 meeting in Neilsville, WI.  There were a total of 38 pints of syrup entered, 9 were light amber, 18 were medium amber, and 11 were dark amber. 

There were 6 entries that received a 100% grade for the syrup submitted.  Hedmark’s Maple Ridge is one of these 6!


So with that, remember, if you need to restock, give a fantastic, unique gift, be sure to stop by the Orchard to pick up some of Hedmark’s Maple Ridge’s Maple Syrup!
