Together, Terri & Terry Patterson took over ownership as the 4th generation sugar makers of Patterson Farms in Sabinsville, Pennsylvania. Terry's father, Richard, passed away in 2017. Richard would be proud to see them keeping his legacy alive by accomplishing plans he had for the farm before he passed, as well as bringing some of their own ideas to the business. Patterson Farms is the largest producer in Pennsylvania, and boasts over 80,000 taps! To maximize efficiency, they recently purchased three 12' x 20' CDL Stainless Steel Sap Silos.
The silos can be fed from top or bottom. The bottom is sloped for full drainage, and is equipped with a washing system. Each silo can hold 17,000 gallons. Trucks will unload sap into the first silo, where it will then run through a sand filter into the second silo. Filtering the sap before it runs through the RO will prolong the life of their membranes and prefilters. The third silo will hold permeate from the RO for cleaning.

Prior to 2015, each state had a maple syrup grading system of its own. In 2015, the USDA went through the process and developed a uniform grading system. This is now the standard to go by. Please use this chart for conversion from the old PA system to the new US system.
We take pride in producing the finest quality maple syrup, cream, candy, sugar, gift baskets, and much more, all for those who enjoy the pure taste of nature's premium sweetness.
