Bill Culver Fires Up The Maple Syrup Shack

Bill Culver and sons Wayne and Eric have spent the
last few weeks tapping trees, running plastic lines, and
boiling down maple sap to make maple syrup.


Their work produced about 50 gallons of the sticky,
sweet stuff before the warm weather caused the
quality of the sap to deteriorate. Culver's only
produce
the best quality syrup, and shut down the
operation when the syrup starts turning darker.


They package it in several different ways.


This is their evaporator that they use to boil down
the sap to make syrup. It takes a lot of wood to fire
the evaporator and somebody has to be there to
watch it.


This tractor and portable tank allow them to transport
the sap from another location to the evaporator in the
sugar shack.


Here's the sugar shack nestled amongst the maple trees
near their homes on the Two Mile Road in the Port
Allegany area.


Here's some of the sap lines feeding the sap to the
evaporator. They are done for this year, but they
have some top grade maple syrup for sale. Culver's
can be reached at 814-642-9141.

Is it just me, or do Wayne and Eric look like they are up to something? :)

Do they sell their syrup at the Maple Festival too? We always try to get syrup from a different maker every year.......we have NEVER been disappointed by any of the ones we have tried.
