To Protect And Syrup In Maine

I love maple syrup, and anything made with maple syrup

Tyler Jepson started his maple career after he spent a season working at a sugarbush in Jackman, Maine. while attending Unity College for Conservation Law Enforcement. After that season, Tyler was contacted by Kevin and Shelley Bacon, owners of Bacon Farm Maple Products in Sidney, Maine, to work for them.
Under their instruction, Tyler learned day to day operations of a large maple operation that includes over 4,000 taps. The Bacons also taught Tyler how to design, install, and maintain the elaborate sugarbush systems that collect the maple tree sap. After college graduation, during the 2018-19 season, Tyler was able to use these skills to install maple tubing for Bacon Farm’s various clients across the entire state of Maine. In late 2019, Tyler set up operations for Jepson Maple in Hodgdon, Maine, where he is now a federal police officer in addition to running his own maple business.
