Sweet Success



3840

When Arnold Coombs took the helm of the family business, he also inherited six generations of loyal workers—trees. Lots of them. Coombs Family Farms has been producing sticky-sweet, pure maple syrup since 1840, and many of the trees predate the business by an extra 150 years. In addition to the company’s rich history, a modern development has waffle-lovers begging for more: In 1988, Coombs Family Farms began offering certified-organic syrup. Trees are neither over-tapped nor exposed to harmful pesticides. If that weren’t incentive enough to indulge in some much-needed breakfast sweetener, consider using the syrup for one of the recipes on the Coombs Family Farms Web site. Who knew that Grade A Medium Amber went so well with pork chops, swordfish, and cocktails? A case of 12 bottles of syrup costs just $23.16 on Amazon.com.
