Bacon Farm Maple Products,LLC is located in Sidney, Maine at the intersection of Route 23 and the Goodhue Road, is now in our sixth generation of sugar makers. Our farm was originally founded in 1881 by Henry Otis Bacon and operated as a dairy and market farm. Maple syrup was produced in the spring to supplement the dairy.
The farm is currently owned and operated by Kevin & Shelley Bacon, along with our son Nathan. We are proud of our heritage and lifestyle and our primary focus is to maintain the quality and care in our products and offerings as our great, great, great grandparents did when they produced small batches of syrup for their family and neighbors.
In the early weeks of each year, our corner of Sidney is transformed preparing to check the tubing setup in the woods and being sure they survived the winter snow, tapping over 3500 trees, beginning the collection of sap, boiling sap into syrup, and bottling the syrup ready for our family, friends, and customers to enjoy. When Maine Maple Sunday Weekend arrives(the 4th Sunday in March), the sides of the road are lined with cars as far as one's eyes can see with visitors, young and young at heart, anxious to see, smell, and enjoy the maple goodness.
Our products are guaranteed for their freshness and 100% pure natural flavor and are available year round.
