In 1994, Jesse Nivolo tapped his first maple tree at 8 years old. That very first drop of sap inspired a life-long interest of maple sugaring and farming in Jesse, ultimately leading to the creation of Hilljack Sugar Shack in 1996. Over the years, the farm at Hilljack has increased the number of maple syrup taps and the variety of products sold.
Today, Hilljack Sugar Shack proudly produces and sells high-quality goods including maple syrup, honey, fudge, and farm fresh eggs. All of our products are farm-fresh and Connecticut grown.
We hope to see you on the farm!
