Maple Hill Farm - Barton, Vermont LLC is an independently owned, diversified 30-acre maple and Christmas tree farm located in the Northeast Kingdom. Husband and wife team Nick and Stephanie Lussier produce and handcraft pure Vermont maple syrup, maple cream, and their signature maple seasonings and jellies, as well as raw honey. They ship their Balsam and Fraser Fir trees and handmade decorated wreaths nationwide.
After purchasing 30-acres of farmland in Barton in 2012, owner Nick Lussier started putting his degree in agricultural sciences from Vermont Technical College to work by planting Christmas trees. In 2015, he built a sugarhouse, tapped his grove of sugar maples on Maple Hill, and started producing wood-fired, small batch maple syrup. Nick’s entrepreneurial spirit and his family’s sugar making history in the Northeast Kingdom, partnered with his then fiancée Stephanie LaBarron’s marketing and social media expertise led the team to start producing a line of specialty maple products.
In addition to beautifully packaged maple syrup, they offer maple cream, maple sugar, and a signature line of maple seasonings—all available in their online maple store. In addition to maple, Nick’s father operates Maple Hill Apiaries, located on the farm, to produce the raw honey they sell.
Since 2014 the Christmas tree farm has grown from 2500 to over 11,000 Balsam and Fraser Christmas trees. These beautiful and vigorous trees thrive in the farm’s rich soil and love northern Vermont’s cold climate. With thousands of them to choose from, varying in height from 4 to 9 feet tall, Maple Hill Farm offers Choose & Cut trees and fresh-shipped Mail Order Trees, along with handcrafted and artfully decorated wreaths.
