2021 Participating Vendors
Sap Happy Maple Products
Sap Happy Maple Products originated in 2011 when Jason and Becky Jorns began tapping eight maple trees in their front yard. Jason is the 4th generation of maple syrup producers in his family and he missed the practice of sap collection he had grown up with, so he and his wife decided to expand this seasonal passion into a family-owned business of their own.
Last year Sap Happy put in 2,300 taps and made more than 500 gallons of pure maple syrup from sap collected in Door and Kewaunee Counties. And in addition, make maple snacks like maple glazed pecans, maple popcorn, maple almond crunchies with dried cherries, maple cream, maple cinnamon butter, maple candy, maple sugar, maple old fashioned mix and also have a large variety of jams. Most recently have added bourbon barrel-aged maple syrup and birch syrup to their list of products.
The process of collecting tree sap is both time-sensitive and well as labor-intensive. Individual trees are first drilled and then tapped with a hollow metal tube. Sap is collected in buckets hanging off the trunk of the maple trees. From there, it is collected and poured into tanks on a tractor or four-wheeler that can maneuver more easily in the hardwoods. Eventually, the sap is taken to their sugar shack located in Sturgeon Bay, WI where it is rendered for hours using the right combination of temperature and time to create the goodness of natural maple syrup.
We take pride in the fact that we use organic practices and produce maple syrup the old fashioned way, hauling alot of buckets and cooking over a wood-fed fire. Syrup season may only last a couple weeks to a couple months but they work hard at it all year long cutting and stacking their firewood for the next season.
Collecting tree sap is our meditation in early spring. The snow, sunlight and branches of the trees are beautiful. All the hard work comes back to us when we see repeat customers and hear how much they enjoy our syrup.

- Pure Maple syrup, bourbon barrel aged maple syrup, maple popcorn, maple glazed pecans, maple sugar/cream/candy, maple almond Crunchies with dried cherries, bbq sauces, jams, maple bourbon mustard, maple toffee, maple cinnamon butter, maple old fashioned mix, dried apples and cherries
Sperber’s Farm Market
Sperber’s Farm Market was purchased by Jessica Sperber Gerdmann’s great grandparents back in 1921. Jessica and her husband Bryce and their four children took over the gardening and attending the Sturgeon Bay market in 2017.
Jessica is the 3rd generation to be growing vegetables and attending markets. Her Great Aunt Helen used to be a vendor in Algoma back in the 1980s and 1990s. Jessica remembers going with her to the Algoma market on Saturday morning and with her grandmother to the Sturgeon Bay market. After her grandma and great aunt passed, Jessica’s dad took over growing the vegetables and her children would help when needed.
Since 2017 the entire family grows vegetables, cans and freezes from the garden and as well as raises their own meat. They have all learned that raising their own food tastes a lot better than from stores!
