OUR STORY

Wild Hill Maple was established in 2002 by owner and operator, Brian Ducharme.  Brian’s commitment to traditional maple syrup production began as a child when he and his father experimented with boiling sap in outdoor fireplaces- in fact, four years of Wild Hill Maple syrup was created in just this way!

 

In the early years of production, Brian gathered hundreds of buckets of sap, and stocked outdoor fireplaces and burners with wood.  After refining his methods, he soon established himself as a respected New York State sugar maker.  In 2006, to meet the demand and to fully realize his dream, Brian constructed his own sugar shack using trees cut from his property. 

 

He has many loyal customers and his products are sold in a number of businesses in and around Salem, NY.  He has  won several awards for his syrup and candy making!

 

This shift to large scale production never compromised Brian’s commitment to traditional methods of making maple syrup, and his maple business continues to grow.

Wild Hill Maple welcomes visitors each year during the New York State Maple Open House Weekends where tours are given of the Wild Hill facility.  And children (of all ages!) can even make their own piece of maple candy in the Wild Hill Maple kitchen!  Also available 7 days a week, year round; call to arrange a visit!
