Attraction details
Recommended length of visit: 2-3 hours
Owner description: Located on 800 acres of pristine land in the beautiful Hudson Valley, Crown Maple makes the perfect day trip. On Saturdays and Sundays at 11am, 1pm and 3pm, take a tour of our state-of-the-art sugarhouse and follow the journey our maple sap takes to become what is quite possibly the purest maple syrup on earth. Our Crown Maple store offers a variety of maple products, from pancake mix to mixed nuts and even spice rubs! While you're here, be sure to grab a bite to eat at our Farmstand Cafe, open 10am-5pm. Our menu is packed with fresh seasonal ingredients and of course, maple!

We visited today for a tour of the syrup making facility and had a wonderful time. The tour was very informative and our tour guide was pleasant and knowledgeable. We grabbed a NY beer (I believe they only sell beer/soda from the state) and some sweets at the cafe before the tour - both were excellent. All of the staff we encountered were extremely friendly and helpful. We hope to go back soon and try some heartier fare at the cafe and spend an afternoon on the hiking/walking trails that run all through the property. For what it's worth, I think they had the nicest bathroom facilities I have ever seen at a retail establishment.

We are the Receptive Operator in the Hudson River Valley and were invited to see our newest attraction. We were extremely please as we entered this property. This is a definite MUST SEE!!! We had a wonderful tour and now understand how this fine product is produced, Crown Maple Syrup. We also had the pleasure of enjoying a fine lunch prepared by CIA trained, Jacob Griffin. I can't wait to bring my family back and we also look forward to bringing many groups there. This is definitely a stop on your next trip to the Hudson River Valley. Plan to have lunch!!!
