About Spring Lake Ranch Maple Syrup
What People Are Saying
Long term staff went beyond the call of duty to help me when I was struggling. They would take time out to talk to me and help me resume my activities. I felt the best when I felt listened to and taken seriously by the staff. I felt that the staff treated me as a person and equal, and not a patient. I have been to other programs but at the Ranch the staff is not just staff.

Pure Vermont Maple Syrup
Each February the residents and staff of Spring Lake Ranch troop through the snow carrying buckets of sap, and the warm, sweet aroma of boiling sap fills the sugar house. Here in Vermont, we have maple syrup on our minds - pouring syrup over our pancakes and in our coffee on brisk mornings, selling syrup at the local farmers’ market, and sending syrup to family and friends for the holidays.
Making maple syrup is a labor intensive process: we tap thousands of sugar maples at the end of the winter and spend the spring collecting sap and boiling it down into pure maple syrup. Throughout the year we split wood to fuel the sugar house evaporator and maintain the sugar lines in the woods. But the process is as rewarding as it is rigorous: working together outdoors and building new skills are the heart of the Spring Lake Ranch program, where people with mental illness come to participate in a residential community that fosters growth and healing.
Making maple syrup enriches Spring Lake Ranch in other ways. All of the profits from sales of maple syrup go directly to the Sarcka Scholarship Fund. This helps us reach our goal of accepting more residents in need.
We hope you will purchase our syrup or consider giving Spring Lake Ranch pure maple syrup to your loved ones and business associates. Our syrup comes in convenient half-pint, pint, quart, and half gallon decorative containers. Holiday orders are packaged in colorful handmade cotton gift bags at no extra cost.
