Lakeridge Maple Farm: Our Story
My business partner Jason Macie and I (Jason Herron) met in kindergarten and have been friends ever since. We are both 43, so we’ve known each other for 38+ years. Almost everyone we know calls me Herron and him Mace to avoid the “Jason” confusion. When we were younger we loved to go to northern Vermont to camp and fish. That is when we first talked about owning as much land as we could and try to make a living off of it. As you might imagine, we both really love the outdoors and enjoy working in the woods.
Our main goal was to start a sugaring operation but we couldn’t afford an actual “sugar bush.” For your reference, an established sugar bush is basically a wooded area with almost exclusively maple trees. The land we purchased, was mostly Hemlock trees with maples scattered throughout.
We have been logging the Hemlock and non-Maple hardwoods to expose the maples. The non-Maple hardwood we turn into firewood. We cut, split and deliver the firewood locally in Vermont.
The Hemlock trees are used for pulp that we have trucked from our property to a large lumber buyer and saw logs that we sell to a local sawmill, another old friend.
