Lumberjack Maple Syrup Co. was established in 2015 and is owned and operated by the Kowalkowski Family in Armstrong Creek, Wisconsin. Prior to 2015, every spring we enjoyed collecting sap with family and friends as a hobby. At the time, collecting sap was executed by maneuvering our logging equipment with a collection tank through the woods, which was filled by the labor intensive process of emptying every pail from hundreds of trees. After several years of collecting sap this way, we decided to research the opportunity to expand utilizing technological advances in collection and processing of sap into syrup which has brought us to where we are today. Since 2015, we have been collecting sap through a tubing system, with the aid of vacuum pumps and releasers which pump large volumes of sap automatically into collection tanks. From there, the sap is pumped onto tanker trucks and hauled back to our state-of-the-art sugar house to be processed into delicious syrup. We currently collect sap on 200 acres from 12,000 taps and produce 4,500-6,000 gallons of syrup per year, depending on what mother nature provides for us.
3. Hauling the sap
When the collection tank is full, the sap is pumped on the tanker truck and hauled back to the sugar house for processing. At the sugar house, the sap is pumped from our tanker trucks into our silo, which can hold up to 20,000 gallons.
