    A Great Place to Learn About Vermont Farming
    We visited Sugarbush Farm (Sugarbush) last fourth of July. I was a little concerned they would be closed, but they were open. The first big surprise was I expected Sugarbush to be right off the main road in Woodstock. It is actually a few miles off the beaten path, and getting there actually happens to be a beautiful trip itself. The thing I remember most was how friendly the family who own the farm are. They rightfully believe that if you see their farm and the care they put into their products, that you will have a greater appreciation for their products. The farm and the land on which it is located are breath-taking. Their sugarhouse is open and has great signage so that you understand the syrup-making process. There is also a movie about syrup-making. Our next stop was the store. I appreciated being able to try all four grades of syrup to see which I liked the best. In addition, they let us sample their delicious cheese. The store has a large selection of products, almost all of which are advance for sampling first. We also walked through the woods, where the maple trees are located to see how they harvest the sap. I recommend visiting Sugarbrush, especially if you have kids. It's an unforgettable stop in which you get to experience Vermont.

    Vermont Farm Treat!
    For a Vermont farm experience we enjoyed our visit to Sugarbush Farm. They had a cheese tasting area, store with goodies for sale, farm animals to visit and a maple sugar house. It was great to try all the cheeses they made and learn about the Maple Sugar process. It is not a large place so it can get a bit busy on a nice Fall day. They did make an effort for Covid safety, limiting the # of people inside, masks etc.

    Cheese samples and a trip waaayy out there!
    Waaayyy out there in the middle of the woods, so you really have to want to get there! Off the main roads, depending on which direction you come from it's off asphalt and on dirt roads...but go there! Look for all the yellow signs as you get close! You won't be disappointed, friendly people and more than willing to give you as many samples of their cheeses and syrup as you want! BTW...GREAT cheeses! They also have a "sugar house" to learn about getting maple sugar from trees, a few horses and goats to view and a nice hiking trail in the woods. Beautiful VT grounds to see the foliage!

I agree with the reviews. They have a nice farm with nice views. Here's my buts:

1) I traveled here during COVID. They crammed so many people into a room for the cheese tasting, I was pretty uncomfortable. I bought some cheese and got the hell out of there.
2) There is no sense of hygiene. They do not wear gloves when sampling food. They use tongs, but no gloves. One of the gals dropped a piece of cheese on the table and thought about picking it back up to give to me as a sample and the look I gave her probably was an indication that this was not the proper move. She threw it away.
3) The guys sampling the maple syrup outside were not wearing masks or wearing gloves.

Just because Sugarbush Farm is close, it does not mean it's the place to go. I went to four other cheese farms within a 30 minute drive of Woodstock while I was there. We're still in the middle of a pandemic and these guys have zero sense of basic food handling. Now, you can come @ me if you do not believe in mask wearing during a pandemic. But, if you like to watch people not wearing gloves while handing your food, by all means....

First off, they have great cheese. HOWEVER, there were little to no precautions taken during COVID. They seemed to be limiting people in the tasting room, but nothing was done in the store. There were too many people cramped into a very small space. There was maybe a few inches between people. VERY disappointed in the lack of safety measures taken during these times.

Narrow and winding gravel road up to the farm. With all the amazing reviews we are probably in the minority here but my husband & I didn’t really understand the hype. The farm store is inside a super small farm house with way too many customers crammed inside. The older woman that rang up my items was friendly but she coughed probably 10x as she scanned and bagged my items - without covering her mouth or wearing a mask.

On a recent road trip we followed the amusing signs and amazing views to Sugar Bush Farm. We walked around a little outside and saw the goats, rabbits, and horses. Just inside the entrance is their tasting room where you can try the cheeses and maple syrup. Then you enter the shop where you can buy the said cheeses and maple syrup. They also have a variety of maple based products plus the usual gift shop items, t shirts and such. Nice place to stop if in the area.

We arrived on rainy day and did a self tour of the farm. The farm is small and clean. There is a sugar shack with description of sugar maple production and woods to walk through to observe tapped trees. The store has various cheese samples and maple syrup samples. Staff is super friendly and helpful.

So we put the address in google maps and were routed down several country roads that were very rural. We wondered if anyone else would be there when we arrived. We entered the driveway and found about 20 cars. They have a woods walk and cheese/syrup tasting. There is also a gift shop to purchase their products. It isn’t a large place but we did take home some delicious syrup.

Although maple syrup making time is late Feb to early April it’s still great to see. The samples were great. Lots of stuff you can buy as well. The Sugar house and Chapel walk along with the views are great. Love the history here. Same family has run this business for 77 years.. since 1945.

Great little farm has it all. Baby animals and rolling fields of green. Sugar House with demos and self-guided tour. Cheese and maple syrup demos and tastings were a huge hit with my family. Very informative and delicious. Demo followed by small but well-stocked farm store with all the cheeses and syrups that were sampled and made at the farm plus numerous other VT delicacies and craft items, t-shirts, books, etc. Well worth the country road side trip. Expect to spend an hour or less there. The people who work at the farm are so friendly and helpful!

We visited here in the morning when they were opening up, and received samples of cheese and syrup, which were delicious. We were then directed into the gift shop where we purchased some of our favorites from the samples, and some other gifts to take home. It was a good visit, but I wished I had seen more of the farm. Also felt like we were being rushed through the gift shop, and we were told to exit through a door that was locked and I cut my finger trying to unlock it, then proceeded to fall on the very steep stairs outside the exit door. Don't go here if you are in a wheelchair or have mobility issues because it will be difficult. I think overall it was a neat place to visit, but be careful. Also, parking not paved so rainy day probably not good.

This was a surprisingly great stop on our vacation. We went during a rainy weekday and there were no crowds. The samples of cheese and syrup were delicious (which of course inspired us to purchase some!). All the staff were friendly. I felt like I was walking back in time and enjoyed seeing a family run farm. It was interesting to see the barn where it was shown on a self tour of how and when maple syrup is tapped and collected. The walk off the parking lot to see how the trees are tapped was also interesting and we enjoyed the little country chapel. It was refreshing for us to see the sign above the chapel door giving the Lord, the land, the maples, the animals as their providers.
