Madava Farms (home to Crown Maple Syrup) is situated in Dutchess County on 800 acres of century-old sugar and red maples. The fertile soil conditions and seasonal weather make it a perfect location to produce superior sap for maple sugaring. The farm is home to one of the most advanced maple syrup production facilities in the country and boasts a state-of-the-art ‘sugarhouse’ operation where the sap collected from the sustainably managed maple groves meets green, organic production techniques.
HVADC has worked with this growing business on their efforts to incorporate a commercial kitchen into their operation. As a tourist destination, it was critical for Crown Maple to be able to provide visitors with on-site options for purchasing meals. HVADC also provided assistance with state and local related permitting challenges. In addition to their maple syrup production, Madava Farms now operates an on-site café with a fresh weekly menu.
