Fresh. Local. Maple Goodness.

Hi!  Thank you for stopping by!  We’re Cameron & Tanya Lavender, here to share our local food story with you.

Lavender Family Maple Goodness was born out of the love we share for our families’ century & a half deep roots in North Hastings.   

We pride ourselves on producing incredible tasting, first quality, wood fired flat pan smoky maple syrup in our family sugar bush, the same bush Cameron’s great grandfather tapped in the 1860s, in Tudor Township, Hastings County. In addition to pure maple-syrup, sugar, butter & candy, we offer a wide assortment of other maple based products including:

  • maple baked goods (maple syrup butter tarts in butter sour cream pastry & maple syrup & butter chelsea buns +more) & maple, cream & butter fudge,
  • maple sweetened jams & fruit butters,
  • savoury maple preserves like mustard, bbq sauce, relish & pickled jalapenos,
  • maple sweetened hot sauces & hot syrups &
  • dry goods like maple sugar pancake mix & maple sugar BBQ rub,
  • as well as sugar sweetened beet pickles, dill pickles, bread & butter pickles & whiskey finished green tomato mincemeat. 

Most items are produced in the sugar bush or in our health inspected home kitchen, both in Hastings County.  We both hold valid Ontario food handler certificates. Some items containing Lavender family syrup are available due to strategic alliances with local partners. 

Lavender Family Maple Goodness regularly provides complimentary tastings locally with our retail partners & in a limited fashion at Bancroft Farmer’s Market.  Please like & follow our Facebook & or Instagram pages (links below) for dates, times & places
