Pure Maple Syrup

by Uncle Lee’s Bees

Made in Calgary


Our province may lack sugar maples but Uncle Lee’s Bees has found a way to produce top notch syrup regardless. The company’s beekeepers use sap from boxelder maple trees to produce this distinctly Albertan syrup. As far as we can tell, Uncle Lee’s is the only Alberta company making maple syrup commercially, and its production has had to expand year-over-year to meet the growing demand.
