About Purinton Maple
Chase Purinton moved to Vermont in 1803 settling on a hillside farm. For generations, the Purinton family produced maple syrup on their farms in Lincoln and Bristol, Vermont. Peter Purinton (descendent of Chase) fell in love with being outside and had a genuine passion for making maple syrup as he learned the process from his father Robert. In 1962, at the age of six, Peter tapped eight sugar maple trees on his own. Little by little, Peter kept growing and advancing his sugaring operation.
The Maple Farm
In 1979, Peter moved to Huntington where he purchased a sugarbush from the Jaques family. With one vision in mind, Peter worked hard to maintain a maple forest that was sustainable for generations. Today, Peter and Carla Purinton tap 17,000 sugar maple trees on 350 acres of farmland.
The Next Generation
The next generation of Purinton children includes Jennifer Purinton Randall, Brittany Purinton, Cody Purinton, and Austin Purinton. Today the next generation children work together with Peter and Carla to help maintain the farm.
