Syrup Sales

Welcome to the Shepherd Sugar Bush in the Sweetest Little Town Around.

The Sugar Bush started in 1958 as a volunteer project with the plan to have the proceed fund park and recreational activities in the community.

Trees are taped in February all over the friendly Village of ShepherdIn late February of each year since, the maples that line Shepherd streets are tapped with approximately 2000 spiles and pails. The sap of 2% to 3% sugar content is collected and evaporated to 67% sugar content in the Sugar Bush building located on North Third Street.

The Festival, held annually during the last full weekend of April, has grown from a pancake supper to a 3-day festival. All of the labor it takes to make and serve the syrup, candy, pancakes and sausage for the festival is donated by volunteers from our area.
