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!** Summer of 2020 we operated with a different format for our facility, due to concerns of Covid-19, and will continue with this format for the 2021 season. We still offer our locally made, hand-dipped ice cream, beautiful vegetable gardens, while incorporating a more out-door based tour, and tastings to order.  We are getting creative in this time; be ready to experience the rich history of our business and Alaskan lifestyle, and enjoy all we have to offer in a new way! We will open in mid- to late-May this year, depending on length of harvest. At of this writing (February 2021) we are planning to be closed Mondays and Tuesdays. Watch this space and our  Facebook  and Instagram  for updates. Thanks for your patience while we continue to adapt to the evolving situation. Support your local businesses in this difficult time.
