Farm
“Since 1915 Maple Grove Farms of Vermont® had sweet beginnings over 100 years ago when Helen Gray and Ethel McLaren began perfecting maple confections on the family farm. These delicious sweets soon had many customers far and wide. The growth led to our existing brick plant. We are proud to be the largest packer of Pure Maple Syrup in the USA, one of the largest manufacturers of Maple Candies in the world, and a national producer of gourmet specialty salad dressings. We've done Helen and Ethel proud!”
