Wildwood Ranch Maple Syrup, a syrup making operation located in Stearns County’s Kraemer Lake – Wildwood County Park, is offering small open house tours this spring.
The hour-long tour begins at the Sugar Shack in St. Joseph. Tours include a short walk to the maple forest to see both traditional and modern ways of collecting maple sap with buckets and vacuum pipelines. In the sugar house, the tour will demonstrate how processing equipment like reverse osmosis machines and evaporators are used to convert sap from the trees into syrup.
