Maple sugaring has been the way of life for the Brant family for eight generations and more than 200 years. The sugar camp, located in Shanksville PA, comes alive in mid-February as the trees are tapped, tubing placed and gathering begins. The camp boasts a state of the art Reverse Osmosis system and is excited to receive an industry leading brand new Supreme RF Arch Leader evaporator system. Visitors are welcome to visit and see the process first hand, purchase maple products and join in the fun. The camp has been host to the PA Maple Producers and the annual Tree Tapping Ceremony to mark the beginning of the season for maple producers.
