David Campbell was elected to the board of directors of the International Maple Syrup Institute at the IMSI annual meeting held in October in Ontario. Campbell joins 25 other maple producers from across North America on this prestigious board >>>
David & Terry Campbell began sugar making long before they built their own sap house in 1972. As young boys, the Campbell brothers gathered raw sap from their own trees and transported it to their Grandfather’s sugarhouse for finishing.
David was able to convince his father in 1972 that they needed to build their own sap house and he hasn’t looked back. In the mid-1980’s he took the business to a new level by participating in area craft fairs and searching for retail outlets to sell their products.
Terry’s wife Sue helps with internet sales, website management and craft fairs throughout the year. During the last 2 weekends of March she can be found in the back corner of the sap house, happily cooking up the all-you-can-eat pancakes & sausage in her “dream” kitchen with her sister-in-law Corrina by her side.
During sugaring season, brother Paul also steps in to help during Maple Open House Weekends. Neighborhood friends work at the sales counter and help serve the many plates of pancakes during the open house, making this a true family business.
In 2005, the brothers made the decision to sell their dairy business, enabling them to focus 100% on maple. Their product line continues to grow each year.
