Our family really enjoyed tasting the maple syrups and cheeses here. The owner, Betsy, was on site working away and everyone was really friendly and helpful. The kids loved feeding the animals and doing the little maple walk to see how they make the syrup. Fun time!

If you are within an hour driving of Woodstock, Vermont and you LOVE cheese, this is a must go! This farm while on the small side, has the most amazing people. The people who work at Sugarbush Farms take immense pride in what they do and the finished product really shows that. My husband and I love cheese so when... More

I thought there would be more to the farm than what was there. The brochure we saw definitely made you believe there would be. We only saw one calf that was tied outside a small little house with barely any room to move around. He did not seem very happy. We saw a couple of goats and rabbits. Then you... More

We really enjoyed the farm. Buster the calf was so sweet and adorable. When we arrived at the farm we played with the animals first before venturing off to view the farm. They were not making maple syrup but we still enjoyed walking around the farm and unfortunately we went later in the day so not much was happening. We... More

We are happy you enjoyed the animals and the farm. The actual making of maple syrup takes place in March and April and since more of our visitors come in the summer and fall we try to explain and show you how we do it with a video, displays and the maple walk in the woods. To see more of... More

My parents always wanted to visit a sugar shack, and we were lucky to have them visit during maple syrup season. The farm was recommended by the Vermont Maple Sugar association, and it was a great recommendation. In addition to sampling syrup, we had the opportunity to sample several cheeses. The cows in Vermont are really happy because they make... More

So glad the visit could be made during the actual maple sugaring season in March and April. There is no way to reproduce the wonderful sweet smell of the maple sap boiling along with the feel and smell of the hot wood burning boiler. However, during our summer and fall season when we get the majority of our visitors we... More

Its great you learned all the work that went into making maple syrup and I am sorry you were not included in the syrup sampling. We generally have a staff of 4-7 women who pack cheese in between visitors and who are available in our tasting room as soon as someone or a group comes in the door. They usually... More

Is this sweet little farm with cows and goats and chickens. Walking trails and of course homemade cheddar cheeses, all kinds. Mild to sharp, smoked, horseradish and bacon cheddars as well as many others. Maple syrup that is all collected there from the trees, on the walk you can see all the tubing, very interesting. Friendly workers and an educational... More

So glad you followed the gravel road to the end of Sugarbush Farm Road and enjoyed our farm. It doesn't matter whether you are coming from Woodstock, Quechee or Taftsville, there is about 2 miles of town maintained "gravel" road to reach our farm. Our township which is Pomfret maintains the road and runs a big road scrapper over it... More

This place will explain and teach visitors about cheese and maple syrup. You can also take a hike into the forest of maple trees. You can also walk down into a shed opposite the taste testing demo area where you can learn how maple syrup is harvested. There is also taste testing so that you will know what you want... More

Glad you could visit and learn about maple syrup . You are the first visitor to mention the objection to charging for our various 7 different recipes sheets and story sheets on making cheese and maple syrup and it gives me something to consider. The reason we started to charge the 25 cents was just to cover the cost of... More

Not a fancy place but worth visiting. You get to sample all kinds of their cheese and see it being waxed. Also have maple syrup tasting. We bought 3 bottles of the syrup. It was just made this March and very good. You could also take the walk and see how the maple comes out of the trees. A must... More

Glad you enjoyed the samples. Last time we counted we had 15 varieties of cheese, 4 grades of syrup and 48 different makers of jams, mustards, spreads and pickles that are made locally that we have to sample. We tell folks not to come on full stomach . More

I ran the Vermont 100 Endurance race ran past quite a few signs for the Sugarbush Maple and Cheese Farm. I was eager to visit and taste! They have three goats, a couple of chickens and a cow that make up a mini-petting zoo. There's also a short trail hike called the Maple Walk showcasing a part of the maple... More

Thanks for visiting the farm. I so admire all you 100 mile racers. As I am coming to work I sometimes pass a group of you and I just can't imagine you will be running from before dawn way into the night, and then I see the runners come to the farm the next couple days and remark how well... More
