Couching Lion Maple Sugar Farm

Today, many know our mountain as Camel’s Hump, but four hundred years ago, explorer Samuel de Champlain used “Le Lion Couchant,” or “Couching Lion” to describe Vermont’s second highest peak. We love the image of a lion couching, or resting, and looking over our sugar maples. Learn more about our stewardship practices and family sugaring history.
