A small scale commercial maple sugaring operation in Wayne County Pennsylvania just outside the town of Waymart. Each spring there are several thousand sugar maple trees tapped, collecting the sap is done with pipeline tubing and vacuum systems to encourage sap flow. For good sap flow warm days above 40 degrees and cold nights below 32 degrees are needed. About fifty buckets are hung each spring to preserve the old fashioned methods of sugaring that our ancestors used. It takes 40 gallons of maple sap from the sugar maple tree to produce 1 gallon of Pure Pennsylvania Maple Syrup. The sugar maple tree with its brilliant colors in the fall makes our area one of the most beautiful places to visit. The maple sap is processed with a reverse osmosis machine that removes 2/3 of the water before we boil the maple sap. The maple sap is then boiled on evaporators where it is boiled down into Pure Pennsylvania Maple Syrup.
