Maple Valley Cooperative's picture

Employer Introduction

Maple Valley, a pioneer in organic and fair practices for maple production, was founded in 1991, became a cooperative in 2007, and today it continues to be a thriving cooperative with a conscience owned by farmers, employees, customers, vendors, and investors with a common vision for a healthy world where nature is protected, people cooperate for the good of all and communities are strong. Our small team of a dozen or so employees are passionate, mission-driven people who like to work hard and have fun while doing so! A handful work in the office and processing facility and the rest of the team (marketing and sales) work remotely.

Our main processing plant and offices are based in Southwest Wisconsin in the small, rural town of Cashton just down the road from Organic Valley's Distribution Center and one of their offices. This "driftless region" of Wisconsin is a mecca for organic food and farming. At Maple Valley, we believe in family scale farming, fair wages for producers and employees, transparency, accountability, and sustainable, fair business practices.

We have high-quality, certified organic maple syrup products free of additives and preservatives – and moreover, we produce a socially responsible commodity. Great effort has gone into selecting and building meaningful relationships with responsible, organically certified woodland farmers based in the Great Lakes and Northeast region of the United States whose standards and practices represent stewardship to the environment and our planet.
