It takes 40-60 gallons of maple sap boiled down to produce 1 gallon of maple syrup. We have 450-500 sugar and red maples on tap. We make about 50 to 100 gallons of 100% pure maple syrup a year, depending upon weather conditions. Syrup season begins in winter, we usually tap mid-January. We collect the sap with tubing on a vacuum system at sundown each day, and process at night. We use a reverse osmosis system to begin reducing the sap, a wood fired evaporator to bring it to syrup stage, and bottle it (in glass) in a propane finisher. We make every effort to use renewable energy and reduce our carbon footprint, using solar PV and thermal systems to generate electricity and heat water.

For those who want to experience "old time" sugaring in N.J., we recommend these public programs: Howell Living History Farm, Mercer county; Lord Stirling Park, Somerset county; Lusscroft Farm, Sussex county. They all have "maple sugaring" events, with complete websites and program calendars. We got our first taps at Howell Farm 30 years ago!

The first time I set foot on The Katzenbach farm I knew I was in a special place. The land continues to grow towards a sustainable marvel. There are many beautiful buildings built by Chuck from wood from his own land, cut with his own sawmill.... [more]

My family has enjoyed the Katzenbachs' honey and syrup for years, and my husband regularly uses their lumber for projects in and out of the home.

We depend on our local farmers for the great food and products they provide.... [more]

As a Princeton-based builder, have been using the Katzenbach's wood for a variety of projects for the last five years. Whether its the white pine grown on site (the clearest I have seen, on par with the old-growth pine used for flooring in historic houses), or rare woods I have brought to be custom-milled, myself and my clients are always impressed with their product....
