Lost and Found: An Icon

This iconic design, still used by maple syrup producers everywhere, was created by Dick Marvin, illustrator extraordinaire in his own right. 

The Marvins were the other half of our MerriMar Maple Syrup business in the 1980s.

Our sugar shack near Moffat, Ontario, was used as a basis for the drawing, although we did not have horses!

The "candy kitchen" was the scene of temperature-exacting production of maple butter and maple sugar candies.

RIP, MerriMar.
