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

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

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

Maple syruping display is simple, but informative. Cheese and maple syrup tasting room was great! Staff explained all about the cheese and encouraged you to sample as many kinds as you wanted. Not fancy, but I really admire this family for finding a way to keep their farm viable!

Donna So glad you enjoyed the samples. Folks are amazed at the difference in flavor between the very light and the very dark maple syrup and are eager to learn how nature changes the complexity of the natural sugar as the season progresses and to when its nearer to the time when the maple bud starts to form and the...

My family and I had a great time at Sugar Bush farm. Trying all the different cheeses was great. We brought a couple of them that we liked. Walking up into the woods to check out how they tap the trees was interesting and the view outside of the tasting room. Gorgeous! Great Vermont experience :-)

So glad you enjoyed the tasting and walking in the woods. October is a beautiful month to visit Vermont but with all our mountains and valleys and farms really any time is perfect to visit our state. More

We went during off peak, but they where busy making cheese and we got a personal tour. Fun way to learn about syrup and try some great cheese.
