Maple syrup, rustic soaps, knits and more

Castleton, Vermont

Top shop for gifts.

Buyers bought gifts from this shop and gave them 5-star reviews!

Announcement    The first of our 2021 syrup is here!

We are a small family operation--our five children help us gather sap from just over 400 taps and we run a small wood-fired evaporator. Made with lots of love in central Vermont.

Our soaps are made of mainly olive oil, with coconut, almond or sesame oils added depending on the type of bar we are going for.

Photo notecards are from pictures I’ve taken on or near our farm here in Vermont.

About oldgatesfarm

On Etsy since 2010

From our homestead in the Taconic Mountains of Vermont

Our family of 7 lives on a small farmstead in Vermont where we raise pastured meats and eggs, veggies, bottle our own wood-fired maple syrup and sell raw milk from our three cow micro-dairy. We're a little homestead that's slowly grown to make our humble living from our farm over the past 17 years.

I started this shop as a fun outlet for my knitting, dyeing and sewing... it's become a spot for me to sell our handmade soaps, farm photography and Adam's maple syrup. Together, we work to provide our community with products made with love on our farm--now we can do that with our etsy community as well!

All of my items are hand-made by me, on my farm in Vermont, USA.

Our syrup is wood-fired and bottled right here on the farm. It's not certified organic, but it's made simply and purely--we collect the sap, boil it in our evaporator with wood-fire and bottle it the same day!

The grain mix is certified organic lentils, rice, millet, oats and spelt. I grind it the same day that I ship it.

My soaps are cold-processed, old-fashioned and made in small batches. Due to their "rustic" nature, their size varies slightly, but is generally around 5oz.

All knitted and sewn items are my own patterns or designs unless otherwise noted on the listing.

All photos are taken by me on my Olympus dslr camera with my 30+ year old lenses. They are unedited and printed either here or through adorama.com.
