Looking to buy locally produced maple syrup grade B preferrably; in CT. I live in western CT but don't mind going for a sunday drive now and then. Thanks, Rich

    We love one in RI, right near the CT border, Uncle Buck's on Church Street in Ashaway RI. The next town over from Westerly, 15 min from Mystic. He is a wonderful guy who has done it for years.

      I'll put in a word for Arlow's Sugar Shack at 101 Bushy Hill Road in Granby, CT. It's a pretty small operation. The reason I like them is that a few years ago, when I decided to tap my one and only maple tree, Arlow sold me the buckets, taps, filters and other supplies I needed and freely gave me advice about how go about tapping my tree and making syrup. They also welcome visitors to observe the boiling process in the sugar house.
