Our names are Steve and Holly Hardwick. We both were born and raised in Maine and have lived here our entire lives. We purchased our 375 acres in Eagle lake in 2005 and have been enjoying it ever since. We are active people and spend most of our time in the great outdoors with our springer spaniel, Charlie. Winters here in northern Maine can be harsh.The temperatures can reach as low as -50 degrees fahrenheit and snow depths of 3 to 4 feet in the woods are common. These harsh conditions seem to make the spring season just a little more special. We have celebrated the season for years, by tapping trees and making syrup for ourselves, our 2 children and family. In 2013, we decided to turn our hobby into a business. Currently, we have about 3000 trees tapped, well over 17 miles of tubing in a 60 acre radius and will be expanding each year producing that sweet pure maple syrup and maple products. We also offer local raw honey and Made in Maine gift items. All here at Northwoods Nectar!
