Maple syrup dominates when it comes to pancake toppings, but the sap of other trees like birch and walnut can also be tapped. New Leaf Tree Syrups, a brand under the company the Forest Farmers, located in Mount Lyon, N.Y., and Marshfield, Vt., now bottles woodsy, organic American beech syrup; viscous and fruity sweet birch syrup; thick, tart and tangy birch; earthy maple-walnut; and light, nutty maple-birch. The syrups come from trees in upstate New York and Vermont. Michael Farrell, a founder who runs the company and started an organization called Forest Farmers, was the director of Cornell University’s Uihlein Maple Research Forest.
