Pure Vermont Maple Syrup...From Mansion House to Your House
Dodge's Mansion House Maple Syrup Sugarhouse is a family business that was started in 1903 by Frank and Annjanet (Nettie) Dodge of Johnson, Vermont. Like many Vermont dairy farmers, Frank and Nettie "sugared" during the slow time of the year - the winter months when the Sugar Maple Tree is leaving dormancy and readying for spring.
Back then, wooden sap buckets were hung on the trees that are tapped in early March; horses were used to pull the dray carrying the gathering tub through the deep snow; and kerosene lanterns provided meager lighting in the sugarhouse.
