Couching Lion Maple Sugar Farm

couching lion sugar house

Couching Lion Maple Sugar farm is located on the Western facing slope of the Green Mountains. When hiking to the top of our sugarbush, you have a spectacular view of Camel’s Hump, or as explorer Samuel de Champlain called it, “Le Lion Couchant,” or Couching Lion.

Matt Menard and Chaska Richardson moved to Huntington in 2002. Matt’s family had sugared for many generations, and he hoped to begin the profession as well. With a full time job as a carpenter, Matt started sugaring on a small scale with buckets. He built a barrel stove and began making small batches of wood fired syrup. By 2012, the desire to sugar on a larger scale had taken hold. Matt built a sugarhouse and began tapping trees in the old sugarbush. Lines were installed and Couching Lion Maple Sugar Farm was born. Chaska began to manage the sales aspect of the operation and found a passion for business. Chaska also keeps busy during her day job as a teacher in Burlington elementary schools.
