My boyfriend and I were a little skeptical visiting here due to all the dirt roads we took to get to Sugarbush. However, when we arrived this skepticism quickly dissipated. Everything in the shop was great: the cheese, all the sauces, and the maple products. We ended up buying bacon cheese, maple cream and an ornament to commemorate our visit.... More

Great choice of cheeses unfortunately not made on site but brought in. Tasty I am told. The maple syrup.products are great and plenty for children and dogs to buy from Betsy. Good maple tree walk showing the tapping process

So glad you enjoyed your visit. The trees are beginning to turn to reds and golds here and its a perfect way to enjoy them when driving slower on our country dirt road. There are several spots along the 3 miles from the main Rt 4 highway that we see folks pulled over and taking lots of photos. More

Approaching Sugarbush Farm from Quechee is an adventure. It is a long and winding country road up and down hills. A lovely summer drive. If you want to know how maple syrup is made this is the spot. There is an excellent self-guided tour and explanation of the process. The cheese tasting room was very hot and stuffy. A lady... More

Dear Canadian Butterly Glad you made it down our long and winding road. Some folks say its the best part of the visit, others are concerned its not paved the last 2 miles. It certainly gives folks an insider view of the beauty of rural Vermont. There are 2 ways to have folks sample cheese and while some folks enjoy... More

We got lost on our way, but the drive was beautiful and well worth it. We were given the opportunity to sample the farm's cheeses and maple syrups, plus many other goodies on offer in the shop. The farm is gorgeous and the staff are friendly and helpful. Well worth the visit.

Yes the drive to the farm is beautiful. Vermont doesn't believe in a lot of signs which makes it a bit harder to find. We have maps at all the local welcome centers and hotels and GPS works well too. All the surrounding area you will find lots of small fields that are farmed, colonial white houses and beautiful views. More

The drive to Sugarbush was the best part of the place. They farm had three goats, a calf, and some chickens in a small area to view. The sugarhouse is in an small old barn and there is not much explanation of how it worked. The posters on the walls are dingy, very old, and homemade. The show room is... More

I am sorry you were disappointed in your visit We think our 8 minute video in the maple sugar house does a pretty job of showing from tapping the tree to boiling the maple sap into syrup. you . The "sugarhouse" was built about 20 years ago specifically as a structure to boil the sap into the syrup. Once syrup... More

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!

Its great you had a fun time with your family. Kids really get into the different ages of the cheeses and the samples of maple syrup and hopefully we are educating them a bit along with having a fun time. More

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 are sorry you were disappointed with your visit. We have about 20 "teenage" calves in our pasture- many times of the day they can be seen right from our front lawn or while down viewing the sugarhouse. Buster the black calf was finally weaned from milk and so was able to go into a larger pen with other animals.... 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
