Nestled in the hills of the Turkeyfoot Valley lies the Sechler Sugar Shack. Our sugar bush has 3,600 taps using state-of-the art tubing which supplies sap for our evaporator. During sugaring season, visitors can experience tapping a tree and gathering buckets of sap. 

Since 1850, our family, now in its 8th generation, has continued the tradition of making the finest maple products including syrup, candy, spread and maple covered peanuts.

The old techniques are continually being updated with the most modern technology to produce the distinctive flavors of Somerset County map syrup.

We would love for Sechler Sugar Shack to be listed as a destination on your next bus trip to the Laurel Highlands. We guarantee your visit with us will be a “sweet” experience.
