Paul Haldeman, a retired military officer and life-long syrup-maker, and Deanna Nelson, a lawyer by trade, are rural neighbors in Rodman, New York, and partners in their business, Zoar Tapatree Co.. With a combined 250-acres of property and approximately 10,000 sugar maples, Haldeman and Nelson have set out to make the most amazing syrup possible--and convince consumers that there is a world of flavor they've been missing. Focused on minimal processing and capturing the daily nuances of terroir, Zoar Tapatree Co. launched small batch, whole maple syrups, and are perhaps the only syrup-makers that have taken "small batch" to individual flows of the trees.
With the development of their own Simplified Syrup Assessment, Zoar Tapatree evaluates each batch of syrup and ascribes nuanced flavor descriptors to each bottle. Haldeman and Nelson have devoted themselves to exploring all aspects of maple syrup production to maximize flavor and put the art back in artisanal.
