Sky's the Limit: Curt Alpeter, Laura Sorkin, Eric Sorkin, and Runamok
Runamok, of Fairfax, was founded in 2016 by former bulk maple producers Eric Sorkin and his wife, Laura. Together with partner Curt Alpeter, they have taken maple to an entirely new level... Currently, Runamok employs 100 people. It made the list of “Oprah's Favorite Things” right out of the starting gate in 2016. It reported revenues last year of between $10 million and $20 million. “Runamok Maple is redefining maple from tree to table,” the company's publicity says, and that isn't hype.
