What are you serving up this Father’s Day? We usually go to church and then head home for some pancakes or waffles and eggs. Sometimes the kids help out while Dad sits backs and relaxes reading the paper. This year I think the kids are going to want to hurry up and get the waffles made since we recently tried Maple Farms Infusions. They are currently involved with a Kickstarter Campaign to earn money to get their business started. We were able to sample a few of their infused maple syrup collections.
What are Kickstarter Campaigns: Zach Braff is actually trying to earn money toward starting a movie through kickstarter campaign. Just a way to get a small business off the floor. You can get more information here.
History behind Maple Farms:
Maple Farms full product line includes fruit and liquor infused maple syrup and candy, gourmet gluten-free pancake & waffle mixes and gift baskets.
Maple Farms syrup is naturally infused with organic fruits from local farms during the condensation from sap to syrup and then again upon bottling. Their top-secret double infusion process naturally preserves the fruit in Maple Farms’ sweet, sticky pure Adirondack amber maple syrup and packs in more rich fruit flavor than anyone knew existed!
Their line of Liquor Infused Maple Syrups are actually reverse infused, by barrel aging 100% Pure Adirondack Medium Amber syrup in oak casks previously used by some of the region’s most award-winning, small batch distillers including Berkshire Mountain Distillers and Finger Lakes Distillery. They have also mixed it up a bit and threw in some underground favorites like Eastside and New Deal Distilling from Portland, Oregon. The syrup is barrel aged for four to six months in climate controlled temperatures to draw out all the natural flavors locked deep inside the oak. Then it is bottled in ornate, swing-top glass flasks, triple sealed and wax dipped to keep all those delicious flavors inside.
Not even available on the market yet, Maple Farms has launched it official Kickstarter Campaign and offer backers the first chance to receive their gourmet maple products as of May 15, 2013.

It goes up from there…
My husband loved the bourbon infused syrup. He loves bourbon and this was right up his alley. The kids really enjoyed the fruit flavored varieties we tested strawberry and peach. There are pieces of real fruit inside the bottles, even these little sample sizes. No one cared for the cognac variety. If you are a cognac drinker than I am sure it will be enjoyed.
So brighten up your breakfast this summer and give this kickstarter campaign company a try. It is a win win as you still get some product to enjoy!!
Which flavor would you enjoy?
