“The Marvin family has been deeply involved in the science, art, and practice of maple sugaring and the Vermont Maple Industry since the 1940’s. A legacy and heritage we’re proud to carry forward as the next generation. Our story has become greater than that of just our own family. It extends to all those with whom we work – the sugarmakers that supply us, the customers whom we supply, and the Butternut Mountain Farm crew. Their stories are the story of Butternut Mountain Farm and we’re grateful for all that they’ve done to help to make us who we are.” -Emma and Ira Marvin
“With his innate sense of discovery and expertise in botany, our grandfather, Dr. James Wallace Marvin, a research professor, dedicated his career to understanding the mechanism of sap flow in sugar maple trees. A practical man, it’s no surprise his work led to the creation of the tubing and vacuum systems commonly used today in sap harvest. By co-founding the Proctor Maple Research Center and the Vermont Maple Industry Council, our family’s stewardship of maple began.
The methodical approach and rigor applied in our grandfather’s research carries through into what we do today. Whether testing out the latest in maple sugaring equipment, evaluating new processing equipment, or developing new products, we believe that it’s the little things that make a difference.
Vermont pride informs our team’s culture. It drives every one of us to consistently deliver the best maple products and the highest level of customer service. Butternut Mountain Farm is, indeed, a family business…a family that has blossomed to over 80 employees, hundreds of farmers and thousands of customers.” -Emma and Ira Marvin
