Maple Syrup – Passamaquoddy Maple
100% Maine Maple Syrup, Grade A Organic (Certified organic by MOFGA) made by Passamaquoddy Maple of Jackman, Maine. Run by Marie Harnois, Passamaquoddy Maple is a business venture by the Passamaquoddy Tribe seeking to bring jobs and self-sustainability to their people. As reported in the Portland Press Herald: "For the Passamaquoddies, the syrup project is appealing because of tribal roots. Native Americans were making maple syrup long before the first European settlers arrived. It’s also attractive because it’s a renewable resource and allows tribal members to spend time with nature. The land is true wilderness, covered in 3 feet of snowpack even in April and teeming with moose, deer and lynx. There’s even a bear den among the tapped trees. “It goes back to our ancestors. Our ancestors did this,” said Marie Harnois, who’s in charge of the operation. “It will create employment year after year and hopefully make a profit for our tribe.” Eventually, the operation will support a dozen jobs. Coupled with its other projects, the tribe hopes the jobs will add up and the operations will contribute revenue to tribal operations. For the Passamaquoddies, it’s all about creating jobs to keep tribal members from having to leave Indian Township and Pleasant Point, the ancestral homeland where more than 2,000 tribal members live." Available in the following sizes: 1/2 pint plastic jug, 1pint plastic jug, 1 Qt plastic jug, 250 ml glass moose jar, 50 ml glass maple leaf jar
