Shemanski Maple Syrup is located just outside of Waymart in the Northeastern corner of Pennsylvania in Wayne County.
Maple sugaring has been passed down through the generations in the Shemanski family along with a wealth of knowledge and experience. Today, they use the latest technology, including an extensive tubing system, vacuum pumps, reverse osmosis equipment, ultraviolet lights and evaporators.
Their maple roots run deep. Sugaring in the Shemanski family can be traced all the way back to the late 1700’s. Ron, the owner of Shemanski Maple Syrup, is a direct descendant of Samuel Preston. Samuel Preston made maple sugar in the Union Sugar Camp in Northern Wayne County, Pennsylvania and presented this maple sugar as a gift to President George Washington.
They thoroughly enjoy the entire process of making maple syrup…so much so that they still hang roughly fifty buckets each spring to preserve the old-fashioned methods of sugaring that their ancestors used when they made maple syrup hundreds of years ago.
