100 Percent Pure New York Maple Syrup


A family tradition for generations, the tapping of the sugar bush and sweet smell of Maple Syrup continues at Sunny Cove Farm every spring. The whole family; Jerry, Dotty, Matthew, Kelby, Meghan, Kevin, Isaac, Joseph, and John all get involved in the production of pure Maple Syrup with almost all of the sap being collected the old fashioned way with buckets.

The New Sugar House


On February 9, 2009 Sunny Cove Farm started construction on our brand new 20' x 54' sugar house to house a 40" x 12' wood fired evaporator. We are including pictures of the construction process which was completed enough to boil out first maple syrup on March 9, 2009.


Click on the thumbnails below to see the full size photos of our new sugar shack.



This new venture features a 2,500 gallon stainless steel tank for sap storage to supply sap to our pre-heater in the steam hood which used steam to heat the sap prior to entering the pans. The combination of the sap pre-heater and the air tight firebox which has combustion enhanced by a forced draft blower raising the efficiency of the wood fired evaporator by both capturing more of the heat and causing more complete combustion of the wood.

Did you know:

  • It takes 40 gallons of maple sap to make 1 gallon of maple syrup?

  • At Sunny Cove Farm we have over 800 buckets that collect maple sap (some of the trees have more than one bucket).

  • We are only tapping about half of the trees we have available.

We hope you enjoy the pictures of this building process and invite you to come and smell the sap boiling, taste the delicious maple syrup and see the evaporator boiling the sap. We are keeping out 2009 prices the same as 2008 and have a good supply available for sale today! Come visit us soon ~ The Snyder Family
