Sapsucker Birch Syrup

Sapsucker Birch Syrup

Yellowknife's Sapsucker Birch Syrup had its start when Mike Mitchell moved from Hay River to Yellowknife in 2010.  He learned his skill from esteemed Metis Elder Fredrick Beaulieau and took his newfound knowledge to his classroom. Years later, upon moving to Yellowknife, Mike found a partner in Craig Scott who was willing to try a new venture out in the woods. They approached the Yellowknives Dene First Nation (YKDFN), and with guidance from Bob Bromley, another elder from Yellowknife, they found a suitable stand of birch trees by Dettah Crossing. They've been hard at work ever since, and some might say their syrup adventures are a good excuse for these rough and tumble guys and their families to live on the land for weeks each spring. Their line of Sapsucker Birch Syrup has become a popular and recognizable locally wildcrafted brand.
