Richter’s Maple House
3115 Hicks Ridge Road, Pickens, WV 26230
Visit one of West Virginia’s largest and most modern Maple Sugar Camps. Here, the owners, Mike and Beth Richter, boil thousands of gallons of maple sap every season into precious maple syrup, maple sugar, maple candy, and that very rare delicacy, maple cream.
The maple harvest season occurs during late winter and early spring. It is then that ideal weather conditions prevail; freezing nights alternating with warm sunny days cause the sap to run. A 20 minute tour is available from March through October for individuals, families and small groups. Large groups and bus tours by appointment.
