Hosts: Don, Marion & Stephen Dodds
Springdale Farm Maple Products is a third generation family owned and operated mid-sized maple operation committed to the production of high quality maple syrup and maple products.
In 2009, Springdale Farm won the David Eaton World Champion Maple Syrup Award at the Royal Winter Fair. This championship maple syrup was presented to Prince Charles when he opened the Royal Winter Fair. Stephen Dodds, of Springdale Farm spoke with Prince Charles during the Prince’s tour of the fair.
In 2013 and 2015 Springdale Farm won the Corbett trophy at “The Royal” and the Premier Exhibitor trophy in 2013.
The Dodds family began making maple syrup on this property in 1917 when Harold Dodds purchased 200 acres of land from Hugh McIlraith. In 2004 Don, Marion and Stephen installed a state of the art evaporator and a Reverse Osmosis equipment to make the operation more viable. Specialties at our operation are our light syrup, our maple butter, our soft maple candy, our maple granulated sugar and Marion’s maple fudge. Our maple products are available year round at our store at the farm.
We appreciate help from son Bryan and his wife Lori and their family Kristen and her husband Eddy, Jennifer and Emily who are always willing to assist any time they can and also help with the special functions.
