When Robb and Lydia Turner bought a land in Dover Plains, they had no intention of becoming farmers. But when friends and neighbors kept pointing out the huge stand of sugar maples on the property, a business idea bloomed. "They saw an opportunity to bring sustainable jobs to the area, protect the environment, and deliver a quality product," says Crown Maple CEO Michael Cobb. In just seven years, the 800-acre maple estate has become the third-largest syrup producer in the US. Available at retailers nationwide, this sylvan elixir is certified organic, sustainably cultivated, and made in small batches. Locally, Crown Maple has sought out like-minded Hudson Valley business owners for joint projects. They've collaborated with Black Dirt Distillery to produce a three-year barrel-aged maple bourbon that has all but sold out in its premier season. Horseshoe Brand, purveyors of all things picante, uses Crown Maple in their hand-crafted sweet and smoky Maple Cayenne hot sauce, which you can try on chicken wings at the Shelter in Rhinebeck. The maple estate is open to visitors for tours and meals, with a full brunch and lunch menu and an outdoor patio. Crownmaple.com
