I was surprised how much I learned about birch syrup at Birchworks. Vivian was friendly and a wonderful ambassador for this birch syrup business. Be sure to watch the short video about birch syrup production. Then taste samples of the current year's product.

We made it 5 minutes before closing and we were still invited to do the tasting on the final tour of the day. Oh well. What we got of the tour was good. We will definitely order more in the future.

Very informative. Birch syrup was delicious. You can taste a variety of products before buying. Expensive but the work is labor intensive. Watch the video and do the tasting once you see the process, It’s worth it.

We stopped out of curiosity and had a great experience. The syrups and jams are so unique and interesting. We bought several items to share with family back in Illinois. Worth a stop for sure!
