Parker's Maple Syrup on Shark Tank
Pure Maple Syrup - Episode 806 - October 21, 2016Parker's Maple Syrup is coming to the Shark Tank Season 8 Episode 806 with one of the sweetest deals ever seen on the Show, pure maple syrup. The entrepreneur who clearly has a passion for making the purest maple syrup imaginable is 18-year-old Joshua Parker, from Canton, New York. Josh started making maple syrup when he was only 11 years old after attending a school field trip that would forever change his life. Who would've thought a trip to a pure maple sugar house would set the wheels in motion for an appearance on the Shark Tank Show only a few years later?

Shark Tank Season 8, Episode 806
In 2014, when Parker was 16 years old, He was already tapping over 3500 maple trees to keep up with demand for his successful pure maple syrup business. Did you know it takes 40 gallons of sap to produce 1 gallon of pure maple syrup?
The video below is from a News Station interview with Parker in 2014. He was already producing over 1100 gallons of pure maple syrup while still attending High School.
Sure, there's lots of competition when it comes to tapping maple trees for making syrup, but Parker's secret ingredient is how it's boiled to its purest, natural form. Parker's Maple Syrup uses wood pellet evaporators that's more time consuming than modern methods, but the purity of the natural sugars is second to none.
Interestingly, when doing a little research about Parker's Maple Syrup before becoming an Official Shark Tank Product, I ran across another business with a similar name. In fact, at first I thought both Parker's Maple and Parker's Maple Barn was the same business which they're not. The Parker Family Maple Farm dates back to 1884, and Parker's Maple (the product seen on Shark Tank) was of course started by a young entrepreneur only a few years ago. The Parker Family Business probably won't mind being associated with a new Shark Tank product (Hard telling how many other Shark Tank Fans will make the wrong connection). But if you're looking for the Official Shark Tank Maple Syrup then make sure it's simply Parker's Maple Syrup.
Watch Parker's Maple on a brand new Shark Tank Episode 806 next Friday night, October 21, 2016, and see if Joshua can take his passion for making maple syrup to the next level with a little bit of help from the Sharks.
