COOMBS FAMILY FARMS Maple Goodies Review & GIVEAWAY




Fall is here and Maple always tastes so good in the fall. I guess because of all the warm oatmeal and pancake breakfasts. Plus it's rich, sweet, warm, earthy flavor just seems right in Fall.


We have a small sugarhouse not far from here and I remember touring it when I was young. It was neat to watch the process, from taking a drink of the sap straight from the tree, to having a warm cube of maple sugar. Good memories!


It takes 40 gallon of sap to make one gallon of syrup! So I know you all will appreciate this golden treat from the trees.
Plus Maple syrup has health benefits!! Yes - Maple syrup, as an excellent source of manganese and a good source of zinc, which can be sweet for your health.
*Maple Syrup Is Sweet On Your Heart
*Maple Syrup Benefits Your Immune Systems
*Men Benefit From Maple Syrup Reproductively
And, Maple syrup is not a commonly allergenic food and is not known to contain measurable amounts of goitrogens, oxalates, or purines.

For seven generations, Coombs Family Farms has produced 100% pure, great tasting, maple syrup by taking special care of their ancient maple trees. My grandfather said, "There are no shortcuts to creating pure maple syrup,do right by the forest, and it'll do right by you." Today, they continue this approach, and proudly support other small maple farmers who share our commitment to quality, environmental stewardship, and sustainable forestry.

"Do Right Right By the Forest, and It'll Do Right By You" - Coombs Family

I love to support companies who are conscience of the environment and who give back. I will continue to look for and purchase Coombs Family Farms products.

Speaking of products, they offer Maple Syrup of course in four grades, Pure Maple Candy, Pure Maple Sugar, and Pancake Mixes. Yummo :)

I personally love the Organic Maple Sugar. It comes in a shaker and I am really loving to shake it on a buttered sweet potato - sooo good.

So what do ya say we get to the really fun part?
