    Harvesting takes place at the beginning of each spring. While the season lasts about 5-6 weeks, we only extract the purest of maple water, which is only available over a few days during the season.

  • How is it processed?

    Tapped straight from the sugar maple tree under strict harvesting protocol, the maple water flows through plastic pipes from the tree into a rough pre-filter.

The fresh and pure maple water is packaged in less than 24 hours. SEVA Maple Water is 100% renewable and packaged in eco-friendly Tetra Paks.

Studies have concluded that harvesting in this gentle manner does no long-term harm to the trees.
