Northwoods Maple is a student run business founded in 2019 and operated through the Hurley K-12's woodshop program. All maples syrup is tapped, collected, packaged, and sold by Hurley High School students.
In 2022 we hosted our first Maple Syrup Open House where we offered tours of the Sap Shack and a behind the scenes look at how we operate. Visitors got to watch as students made and packaged the day's maple syrup and were offered samples to try. The Iron County Extension also had a table there due to their help in this year's production
We also offered an open house experience for all of the elementary students in the building where they were given maple syrup ice cream and given a speech explaining the maple syrup process by some of our students before getting a tour of the sap shack by Mr. Peterson and Mr. Rye.
