Where are we going today?

We LOVE pancakes in the morning, and love when that maple syrup gets drizzled all over it. Don't you! But where does it come from?

Well, at Sugarbush Farm you can find out! You can also enjoy the other farm fun activities there is to do....and we're about the tell you!

First, the tasty maple syrup! Did you know that maple syrup actually comes from trees that are tapped in the spring? Maple trees that is! Sugarbush Farm has a whole display on the entire process, so next time you are eating your pancakes you can think of how much work goes into it! Keep in mind though, the maple season is only March and April...but the display is open all year round!

But we told you there was more to Sugarbush Farm! If you LOVE cheese, you're in luck too! There is a work room where you can see the cheese hand wrapped and hand waxed, which is how they get them ready to send to people's homes to enjoy.

There is even cheese sampling! Yum yum!

During winter, there are some cute and friendly farm animals that the kids can make friends with. They will usually find some chickens, perhaps a horse, rabbits, goats, sheep, and maybe even a baby calf!

And of course you're in Vermont, so you are surrounded by incredible nature! There are great photo opportunities to take those family memories home with you, and even nature trails that you can enjoy if the weather is lovely!  

If you want sweet and tasty farm fun, then head to Sugarbush Farm!

    I love this place. I'm from CT, and about 7 yrs ago we found the farm by accident, been visiting it every since. Their cheese is great, the area is very pretty, we found a road side stand selling corn, the corn was awesome.

    Wonderful. We've been coming to Vermont for family vacations since 1998 and a trip to Sugarbush Farm has been part of every year's visit. Our kids are now in college but still enjoy petting the animals. The samples of cheese and syrup allow you to try everything they produce to help you pick out your favorites. From extra sharp to jalapeno and cayenne to sage, their cheese can't be beat. Ditto for the syrup - our favorite is grade B, full of maple flavor. A visit is recommended!

    I bought some of their cheese recently at a store in Arlington....and just opened it. Much to my disappointment... the cheese was wrapped in ALUMINUM FOIL then sealed in wax. Aluminum is toxic and transfers all of its chemicals to foods when heated and chilled..... much like plastic.

    Why? why would you do that to cheese? This makes me think the farmers are NOT concerned with health, or not aware of the health effects of aluminum.

    When we first arrived at Sugarbush, we wondered if this was the right place. It is a fully functional farm with farm animals, barn, fields. When we walked into the cheese preparation/tasting room, it still felt like "this is all?". But once we moved from room to room, and around the farm itself, we really understood what the other reviews were raving about. First, walk around the farm. There are informational signs everywhere to give you an idea what a building or farming tool is used for. Visit the maple sugar barn, walk through the...Read More

    We both loved this place. The family was very cordial. Betsy was more than patient in explaining EVERYTHING to us. We loved the free samples. We got to try 14 different cheeses and 4 different versions of maple syrup at different time points in the harvesting period. One thing I learned is that whether the syrup is dark or white, the sugar content is the SAME. They have different grading systems, but it's a little weird if you don't have somebody explaining it to you. B is the darkest color which means has the strongest maple flavor while...Read More

It's kind of like pouring hot maple syrup into plastic bottles and sealing them. It INFUSES the maple syrup with the toxic components of the plastic.

Sad, but will not buy this product again.

But once we moved from room to room, and around the farm itself, we really understood what the other reviews were raving about. First, walk around the farm. There are informational signs everywhere to give you an idea what a building or farming tool is used for. Visit the maple sugar barn, walk through the forrest trails, go feed the farm animals. Then, wash your hands and go try some of the best cheese in Vermont. The Smoked Cheese, Jalapeño cheese, and Blue Cheese are outstanding. You'll want to stock up because if it is a 3 hour drive for you like it was for us, you'll run out before you cross the state's border. When you go into the store to pick out your cheese from the refrigerator, you'll find yourself sounded by 50+ samples of everything from syrup to jam to cheese spreads. All very tasty. They also sell maple flavored soda and candy. It's a drive but worth it.

We got to try 14 different cheeses and 4 different versions of maple syrup at different time points in the harvesting period. One thing I learned is that whether the syrup is dark or white, the sugar content is the SAME. They have different grading systems, but it's a little weird if you don't have somebody explaining it to you. B is the darkest color which means has the strongest maple flavor while Fancy is the clearest in color with the least amount of maple flavor. BUT, they are the SAME in chemical composition/sugar content, just harvested at different time periods. We both prefer the strong maple flavor so we bought some. The cheeses were amazing as well. You get to try the lightest cheddar to the sharpest cheddar they have. Excellent way for you to challenge your palette to see what kind of cheddar you like. This place doesn't charge you to taste test while others do. Which is a HUGE plus!!

The tour is a self guided tour so even after the place closes at 5, you can still wander around. I wouldn't stay past sunset because there will be no lights!!

I would definitely recommend this place to people who want to try Maple Syrup.

In order to get here, you have to drive on unpaved road. Kind of sucks for your car, but the journey is well worth it. One driving tidbit, according to TomTom, it will want you to cross a bridge, that particular bridge by the water power plant is out of commission!! One other tid bit, if you happen to pass by this place called Fat Hat Clothing, coming South on Woodstock Road, make a right onto that street (Quechee Main Street), it'll get you to the farm much quicker than driving past the broken bridge and loop around at the other end.
