From our humble beginnings at our first festival to see if anyone would buy our syrup, to several years down the road we've made it into shops like Farmview Market, grocery stores and large festivals like Country Living Fair. We have loved the journey and meeting so many wonderful people has made it all worth the extra hours of work to bring this dream to a reality.
Sutton Mill Creek Syrup Co. was founded in May 2017 by Beth Palmer from Clarkesville, Georgia. I discovered the wonderful flavor of hickory syrup when I purchased some at an even for gifts. But when I went home and shared it with my husband Bruce, we both loved the product and decided to try making some of our own. I am not a stranger to being an entrepreneur. At the time, I owned two businesses and was looking for a new opportunity that I could retire doing.
I gathered up everything needed to make a batch and worked on perfecting the recipe. I decided to try my luck with selling the syrup at a local festival and it was instantly a hit. That festival was the start of adventure for me. Today I am producing, Original Hickory Syrup and other flavors such as Pecan Hickory, which is our top seller and Roasted Pecan Hickory which is a Flavor of Georgia Finalist 2020, Bourbon Hickory, Toasted Marshmallow Hickory, Hickory Heat in Original or Bourbon and one seasonal flavor, strawberry. As my business continues to grow we aspire to create new flavors and products. Our Hickory syrups are hand crafted in small batches, which accounts color and flavor nuances. We forage for the bark right here in Georgia, making it wild crafted and Georgia grown.
Sutton Mill Creek Syrup Co. exists to provide a healthier alternative to artificial syrups by providing premium syrups to consumers. We are committed to making our syrup by handcrafting each bottle of hickory syrup with the finest ingredients such as Non GMO sugar, no *high fructose corn syrup or preservatives. We strive to protect the quality of the environment by producing our syrups in small batches using sustainable ingredients. We work hard to provide outstanding customer service. By wild crafting and using sustainable manufacturing practices we can give people a safe and healthier food choice.
(*Our Roasted Pecan Hickory Syrup only contains a small amount 1/4 Teaspoon of less per 8 oz bottle of regular corn syrup to retard cyrstalization)
