They choose vegetables picked locally and in season whenever possible; roast and saute or steam them for the best flavor, and complement them with creative and unexpected ingredients like specialty cheeses, fresh herbs, nuts, and dried fruits,. Then there’s their secret ingredient, a sustainable food movement, which is blended into each pillowy bite. Put it all together and you have a truly exceptional ravioli that’s good for you too. A notion worth chewing over–indeed!

Ackermann Maple Farm knows that quality syrup is crafted from Vermont’s Sugar Maple trees. In Spring of 2013, Ian Ackermann enlisted the help of his family and friends to construct the Sugar Shack using wood sustainably harvested and milled by Ian himself. There, the syrup that flows from over 2,000 trees is heated using a natural wood fire, separating the water from the mixture and drawing out the pronounced natural maple flavor Vermont is known for. The syrup is bottled and sealed in glass containers by Ackermann himself so that he can assess and assure the quality of each bottle shipped. Glass containers are better for the environment and better preserve the syrup than it’s plastic counterpart for an increased shelf-life.
