Nathan Casey, the proud owner of Casey’s Sugar House in Saranac, NY, has always loved making maple syrup since being a kid. His maple sugaring business now resides in a small, wooden sugarhouse he built with his father.
Casey’s Sugar House takes pride in producing small batches of all natural maple syrup. Nathan claims that his pure maple syrup is better than any of its artificial competitor and is worth the extra cost.
Before coming to the SBDC, Nathan has already produced and sold many gallons of his maple syrup. However, he wanted to expand his business so the SBDC, especially business adviser Angela Smith, helped him secure a grant to purchase new equipment needed. Angela also assisted Nathan in finishing his business plan, doing the financials, and bookkeeping. What Nathan had to do in order to successfully expand his business was not easy. But with Nathan’s great perseverance and the assistance of the SBDC, he acquired the grant, purchased new equipments, and his childhood dream business is now bigger and better.
Almost a year into his expansion plan, Nathan is still on track to produce more and better quality maple syrup, along with working on new channels to distribute his products to more people. If you see a Casey’s Sugar House product someday, please keep in mind that this is Nathan’s love and dream.
