We loved the tour and tasting different batches of birch syrup. Their story is authentically Alaskan and inspiring. We also enjoyed our birch waters, a uniquely Alaskan beverage. Highly recommend this stop close to the Parks Highway.

Needed to burn a little time while awaiting to board our flight with Talkeetna Air Taxi. We pulled in here to check out the Birch syrup. This was very entertaining and educational. The gift shop is perfect for bringing back unique Alaska gifts. The staff was very friendly. The syrup is fantastic. I highly recommend stopping in here when in Talkeetna. Can spend 10 minutes or an hour. You will be glad you stopped.

We stopped here on our way to Anchorage from Denali. We have friends who make their own maple syrup, so we were interested in tasting and learning about birch syrup. The woman in charge was very friendly and helpful and enjoyed telling us about the process. She showed us a relatively short video that showed and explained the process. There were also displays explaining it. She had a little store, and we bought some birch syrup along with blueberry syrup and raspberry rhubarb syrup. She explained the difference in the different runs of syrup. She gave us samples to taste of each run as well as samples to taste of the blueberry and raspberry rhubarb syrups. We walked around outside to see the buckets tapped into birch trees and the piping used to extract the sap. I'd post the pictures that I took outside, but the files are all too large to upload. I knew that she is known also for the ice cream that she sells, so we couldn't leave there without sampling it. My husband and I each had a scoop of our selected flavor of ice cream and topped it with some birch syrup. The ice cream was delicious! I will be honest and say that birch syrup would not be my preferred choice over maple syrup or other syrups, but it was still tasty and I'm glad we stopped and learned what we did. It's always good to learn and sample new things. It is not a very time consuming stop, so if you have a short time to take a little break and learn and sample something new, I highly recommend giving this place a visit.

This is a great stop as you are driving up or down the road to Talkeetna. They show you a film of how the Birch Syrup is gathered and processed and even allowed us to taste some. It was really fascinating to learn about it! They have a large gift shop with a variety of food products that contain the syrup. Or you can just buy the syrup by itself. The prices were quite high otherwise we would have bought a lot more. It's a good place to add to your Talkeetna to-do list!
