Saint John's Maple Syrup

A sap-run is the sweet goodbye of winter. It is the fruit of the equal marriage of sun and frost. 
-John Burroughs "Signs & Season" (1886)

Saint John's Maple Syrup is a partnership between Saint John's Abbey and Saint John's University to continue the tradition of producing maple syrup while providing opportunities for education and service to the community.
