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
In addition to pure Pennsylvania maple syrup they offer cinnamon
infused maple syrup, maple cinnamon sugar, maple cream, maple candy,
maple jelly, and various maple seasonings.
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.
With such a short production window, the task is truly a family effort
with everyone involved.
