About Pennsylvania Hickory Syrup

Doug Drewes is the owner of Pennsylvania Hickory Syrup/Ox Dynasty LLC, he fell in love with the smoky flavor of his first taste of Hickory syrup and was hooked. He learned that the syrup is made from the bark of the Shag Bark Hickory tree. Then Drewes discovered that he had 250 Shag Bark Hickory trees on his property in Juniata County. Drewes was inspired to begin his entrepreneurial efforts to produce Hickory syrup. It took Drewes 8 years to perfect his recipe.

In November 2019, he launched his company, Pennsylvania Hickory Syrup/Ox Dynasty LLC, and the sale of his Hickory syrup. There are different flavor options: Regular flavor hickory, Butter Nut flavor hickory, Bourbon flavor hickory, and seasonal choices are Autumn Spice and Berry flavor hickory. And a new flavor of Spiced Rum hickory is also available. We do farm shows and markets as well as local charities throughout the Pennsylvania.

Hickory syrup is not just for drizzling over pancakes and waffles! It can be used to glaze meats and fish, as a savory dipping sauce, and it can add a hint of smoky sweetness to baked beans, sweet potatoes, and carrots. Just think about hickory-smoked bacon sizzling in your skillet! Use it for grilling, as a marinade, or even an ice cream topping.

Hickory syrup is only made by a small number of artisans in the United States: “There are only 5 people in the United States that make Hickory syrup. One in Kentucky, Indiana, and West Virginia. There are two in Pennsylvania…and Drewes is one of the two”. Each artisan has its blend and technique for making syrup. And, each tree has its unique characteristics.

Each product is meticulously made by combining the best of nature with artisan workmanship and cutting-edge technology. Pennsylvania Hickory Syrup sells its goods both nationally and in its hometown Pennsylvania.
