According to the Wohlschlegels, “The Wohlschlegel family has been making maple syrup for the last 15 years as a hobby on French Hill Road in Naples in a converted chicken coop (Harley’s Sap Shack).  We had around 150 taps on gravity fed tubing and buckets with a 3′ x 5′ evaporator.  We would make about 30 gallons of syrup in a good year.  In September of 2010 we took a ‘huge step’ and built a new sugar house nestled atop the hills of Naples (what a view).  We have expanded our operation to approximately 4200+ taps, a 3′ x 12′ evaporator, a steam-away, and a reverse osmosis system on a wet-dry conductive vacuum system.  We have a highly energy-efficient state of the art system location an 60 acres, 43 of which are maples.  Much of the remaining land is leased to a local farmer for corn.  We also have a small apple orchard and Christmas tree plot started.  Our sugar bush is a Certified Tree Farm, managed by our son, who is a forester.  We are committed to sustaining forests, watershed and healthy habitats and have a forest management plan to uphold these beliefs.”
