Open year-round with free admission, Sugarbush Farm recently received Trip Advisor’s 2016 Certificate of Excellence. Visitors can tour the sugarhouse and sample four grades of maple syrup crafted from the 7,000 trees the farm taps each year. Peek into the workroom where each cheese is packaged by hand; you can even sample all 15 varieties made on the farm. Kids will enjoy meeting the farm animals, including cows, horses, chickens, and goats.
There is always something happening at Sugarbush Farm. During spring and summer, you may find them busy plowing, planting, or cutting hay. In autumn, the beautiful Vermont foliage attracts many visitors to the farm. In early winter, the holiday season is one of the busiest times of the year for mail orders to be prepared and shipped. And with winter easing its grip, March and April are busy times with sugaring as they tap the sugar maple trees, collect the sap, and boil it down for fancy maple syrup. The farm is a perfect place for visitors to learn about the entire process even when sugaring is done, as the sugarhouse is open year-round.
Sugarbush Farm has offered mail order for over 60 years, and today offers a wide selection of cheeses, syrups, and other foods you can order online. They are open from 8am–5pm on weekdays and 9am–5pm on weekends. To learn more about Sugarbush Farm, visit www.sugarbushfarm.com.
