Four Generations of
100% Pure Maple Syrup
White Meadows Farms has been in the Bering Family since 1937. After a few years of establishing themselves on the land, the first generation owner — Adam Bering, decided to harvest some sap and make maple syrup during the winter of 1940 with his son, Gasper. Three generations later, the Bering family still pours their heart and soul into crafting the very best maple syrup from the sap they collect from over 150 acres of sugar bush in Niagara.
Crafted with Care
We carry four grades of 100% Pure Maple Syrup. It’s commonly thought that these grades refer to the quality of the syrup or how it’s boiled. That’s not the case here. All of our grades are crafted with the same care, are 100% pure and equally nutrient rich. The weather at time of sap collection affects the nature of the sap, producing the syrups’ four distinct flavours.
Which Grade of Syrup is the Best?
Visit us in the Maple Sweet Shop or The Maple Syrup Store and let your taste buds pick their favourite with a free sampling of each grade. If you can’t visit, here’s what you need to know to pick the best fit for you:
GOLDEN – Delicate Taste
A delicate, sweet and buttery, syrup with gentle maple undertones and clear gold in colour. We use our Golden syrup to make our maple sugar candies. It is also often loved on yogurt, or drizzled over desserts like ice cream.
AMBER – Rich Taste
Our most popular syrup, we used to serve Amber in our Pancake House and recommend this grade for anyone purchasing syrup as a gift due to its familiar, distinct maple flavour and colour. We’ve found when most people think pure maple syrup over pancakes or waffles, they’re thinking of Amber.
DARK – Robust Taste
This versatile syrup is dark amber in colour and holds a robust maple flavour. A great choice to pour over pancakes for anyone wanting more maple body. Dark also holds its flavour well when used in oven-dishes like squash, as a meat marinade, baked into pastries, or drizzled over desserts.
VERY DARK – Strong Taste
Almost black in colour with a bold maple flavour, this syrup is often considered too heavy over pancakes, but ideal as a glaze for cooked meats, a marinade, or to add a maple boost to baked dishes. Its dominant flavour holds strong when pent with other ingredients. Try Very Dark as a flavourful substitute for sugar in any recipe.
Which Grade is the Sweetest?
All grades of 100% Pure Maple Syrup share the same sugar content. If they didn’t, they wouldn’t be 100% pure. However, your taste buds may decide one tastes sweeter than another. While most of our visitors tell us they find Golden tastes the sweetest, we’ve also been told many times that the darker syrups taste sweeter. Let your own taste buds be the judge and sample the grades in our Maple Sweet Shop or Maple Syrup Store.
