“Enjoyable intro to sugaring”
Reviewed October 23, 2013

Visited with husband and 6 year old. Watched a DVD in the woodshed theater of Mr. Morse's presentation on sugaring. Was hilarious and educational, little bit of colorful language in there. Land was beautiful, maples were too. Was hoping to see Mr. Morse after other reviews but I understand he is deceased and his son is running the sugar house now? Our tour was self guided, there was no one to lead us.

Prices were high but a very comprehensive gift store with lots of cute things. They wrapped our purchases so we could ship them home ourselves and they did not charge extra for this. Visiting the farm was free except for gift shop purchases. Decent bathrooms. My child enjoyed running around and looking at the countryside surrounding the farm, very pretty, but all of Vermont is very pretty :)

I'd recommend stopping by if it's on your way somewhere. Wouldn't recommend if you are traveling a long way to see this attraction, needs more to make it worth a long trip.

“GREAT STUFF IN YOUR PORRIDGE”
Reviewed October 22, 2013

As part of a tour we made our way to Morse farm expecting a boring hour or two about maple syrup. How wrong we were. Burr gave a presentation deserving of an Oscar nomination, funny, witty, dry and a character wrapped up in one. Shop was also very good with a great selection. Put some in my porridge this morning great stuff. Go if you are close by in fact go their if your not you won't be disappointed.

“Love the goat”
Reviewed October 21, 2013

Great place to relax and enjoy a picnic mountainside. The walk up to see the goat is well worth it but I won't tell you why because being surprised is part of the fun. Enjoy!

“Old boy Burr”
Reviewed October 20, 2013

The perfect place to learn the facts about Maple Syrup. One of the brothers Burr does an interesting and very dry but hilarious talk on maple syrup making. you;ve got to see it to believe it.
You get to taste the different types or grades of syrup ,4 in all .all tasty. I like grade 3 the best . goes well on the pancake mix they also sell.Really friendly staff and a good variety of goods for sale. A must if your in the area..

“Mr Morse has a story to tell...!”
Reviewed October 18, 2013

We wanted to visited a maple syrup farm in Vermont and found the Morse farm on the internet. It is located a little outside Montpelier in the north of Vermont. The Morse family makes effort to show their farm to the public. You can sample the 4 different varieties of maple syrup from light to dark, dependent on the time of harvesting. But why 5 stars? This is because of the presentation of the old Mr Morse. Very informative, entertaining and sometimes hilarious. In about 20 minutes he tells the Morse story with a good slide show in the small factory at the farm. Applause!
