About Spring Break Maple & Honey
Our names are Kevin & Kristi and we have lived in rural Maine all our lives. We live on a farm and have 3 adult children and a springer spaniel named Moxie.
We own a business which has a mud season which we call "Spring Break", which lasts 6-8 weeks in April & May. Kevin works in the field and I work in the office. One spring he was on "Spring Break", which means he doesn't have to get up and go to work but I did. After a few days of him interrupting me and me falling behind in my work, I told him he needed to go and tap some trees, thus the beginning of "Spring Break Maple".
In 2001 Kevin decided he wanted to become a beekeeper so he found a man who would help him get started. This all happened in July so we only had one hive as the season was half over. Kevin fell in love with beekeeping thus the beginning of Spring Break Maple & "HONEY".
We have now turned these two hobbies into a business. We are currently working our way to 3500 taps and currently operate 25 bee hives. We produce extracted raw & processed honey, and some years we have comb honey as well. Our products can be found in local stores throughout Aroostook County, Maine and now in many stores throughout western and southern Maine as well and through our secure online store.
2010 we purchased Smith's Maple Products and began making maple candy for a large wholesale market. We are the only wholesale maple candy company in Maine. We also received a dealership with Leader Evaporator Company to sell maple sugaring equipment.
We hold an open house the last weekend in March so drop in and see maple sap turn into maple syrup and go home with your own personal container of our fresh MAINE MAPLE SYRUP.
We are busy working and growing our business, but we always have time to share our "hobbies gone wild" with our customers. Our sugarhouse is also home to a full service gift shop with lots of MAINE MADE products. If you are in the area please stop in to see what's new and exciting at SPRING BREAK MAPLE & HONEY. We also invite you into our online storefront where we offer a secure shopping experience.
