Come visit our Birch Syrup Taste, Tour, and Shop facility, conveniently located on the way to Talkeetna at Mile 1.1 S Talkeetna Spur Road - only a mile off the Parks Highway, at mile 99. We offer a fun and educational tour of the facility revealing the joys and difficulties of a short and intense harvest. Try all of our birch syrup and berry products, along with select other Alaskan food products in our tasting room. See how birch syrup changes through the short three week harvest. Our All Alaskan gift shop focuses on Alaskan food products and fine, functional art - local pottery, wood bowls, birch utensils, and tiles. We have a great selection of cooking, foraging, and outdoor oriented books and a selection of our favorite children's books, local botanical soaps and body care products, and the best is ... we can ship it all home for you in a flat rate box! We have some taste treats too - local ice cream with local flavors, including - of course! - Birch ice cream, snacks and baked goods, smoked salmon, good coffee and chaga tea - another locally harvested product, and tastes of our new birch water beverages - the sap direct from the tree infused with Alaska berries. You can enjoy your beverages and ice cream in our picnic area surrounded by our bountiful vegetable and flower gardens. We are a true "goods from the woods" Alaska cottage industry, and emphasize sustainable use of Alaska's forest resources. Good stewardship and conservation of our forests is essential to the health of our people and the fragile ecosystems in which we hunt, fish, and gather. Come share in our vision - we look forward to your visit! We made some great changes to our facility in 2020, due to the pandemic, that we will carry into 2021. You can now experience all we have to offer in several ways. We created a beautiful space on our comfortable covered porch with a service window to create a safe social distance option for our guests and staff. It is a great choice for ice cream or a quick purchase that does not require entry into the gift shop. As of this writing (5/15) we will require masks to enter the gift shop and tour area and limit the number of people at any one time, at least for now. We will open for the season May 22nd 10-6 daily, closed Tuesdays. Watch this space and our Facebook and Instagram for updates. Thank you for your support of Alaska small businesses. Buy Local!
