Dave started DHM with 15 maple trees in his backyard in 1968. He is our founding Father (The man. The myth. The legend.) and works hard to maintain his woods and help with syrup production. Dave has been a staple at the CNY Regional Market for over 40 years! Find him in the A shed every Saturday.
Gerry is Dave's wife and has also been a familiar face at the CNY Regional Market for quite some time. She rarely misses a Saturday!
Nate is Dave's son and business partner. He grew up heavily involved in syrup production and since his official introduction into the family business, has expanded and more than doubled DHM. Nate keeps very busy with woods-work, sugarhouse improvements, syrup production and markets/special events (he is also the one you see driving by with that big tank full of sap!).
Cristy is Nate's wife and does a lot of the behind the scenes work such as bookkeeping, social media and event planning. She can also be found at many markets/special events.
Kinslee is the boss. Born in 2018 to Nate and Cristy, she began the third generation of our sugaring family. Kinslee started attending markets at just two weeks old and is officially our sweetest product.
Darren is also Dave's son, having been heavily influenced by the yearly tradition of making syrup. Darren is a huge help around the sugarhouse from cleaning barrels all the way to production assistance.
