Britt Maple Syrup Farm: Most often, the syrup we have for sale on our counter is Grade A, Amber (2) or Dark (3). Grade A, Golden (1) syrup is usually purchased through special order as there is often a limited supply of this syrup. On our counter we have a designated area for Grade A, Very Dark Maple Syrup, previously known as Grade B. To determine the grade of our syrup, look at the number on the bottom of the jug. The last number in the sequence designates the Grade A class of the syrup (1, 2, or 3). Very Dark Maple Syrup is still designated with a Grade B sticker on the bottle.
