Back by popular demand will be Drewry’s First Run Syrup, our lightest and most delicate syrup reminding you of those first early days of spring. People will be able to purchase all different sizes of Drewry’s Pure Maple Syrup bottles, as well as Sugar Inthe Woods granulated maple sugar, maple sugar candy, maple pepper and Lakefront Brewery Maple root beer. All other products that can be sampled will also be available for purchase.

There will be special activities for kids as well as tours of the woods and syrup-producing facility. The Drewry family has more than 5000 taps on suspended pipelines and using vacuum pumps, collect the maple sap in four different locations. The sap is then delivered to the maple syrup house located at the bottom of their hill on Winooski Road. Sap is then run through a reverse osmosis machine before it is boiled down on their new evaporator before it is bottled. Other exhibitors include: Smoky Lake Maple Products from Kaukauna, Baux, a new on-line gift box company and “Nature’s Pathways” a magazine that provides information on personal wellness.

Dave and Ruth Drewry, patriarchs of the family, have been passing down their experience and knowledge to their 4 children, their spouses and some of their grandchildren. For the past seven years, the family has been modernizing their facilities and improving their collection techniques in their more than 120 acres of managed woods.

Ancestors of the Drewrys, coming from Vermont, settled and started to farm here in 1847 and they probably brought their maple syrup making knowledge with them and started tapping some of the maple trees. Over the years, the sugar maple trees has been nurtured and have grown to produce enough sap, after it is made into syrup to be sold throughout southern Wisconsin stores and farmer’s markets as well as in many restaurants.
