Hickory Fans marvel at the story that brought them this “amazing” syrup.
When a member of the family was diagnosed with an auto-immune disease and told that there was nothing medicine could offer, Hickory Bill turned to alternative solutions.
“We learned that the American Indians used Hickory Bark for joint pain. We had a large stand of Shagbark Hickory trees on our farm, so we started using the bark and found that it helped.” – Hickory Bill
After several years of using the bark just to make a tonic beverage, Hickory Bill began experimenting with the possibilities of making a Hickory Syrup. It took several years, lots of frustration, and near defeat but the enthusiasm from Hickory Fans tells Hickory Bill that his efforts were not wasted.
