We visit sugarbush farms every time we go to Woodstock. We enjoy all the tastings and discovering a new cheese, syrup or jam to bring home. It's very country, so don't wear your best shoes, but that's part of the beauty of the area...especially in April. We always buy syrup and cheese from them....the "B" grade syrup is our favorite and the only place we know to buy it.

We are glad you enjoy coming to visit. Its a fact that mud season and maple sugaring season need the same kind of weather. The mud has dried up now but we're glad you know to wear boots when you come in the winter or early spring. Vermont has so many wonderful small family food businesses that keep inventing new jams and mustards so we enjoy showcasing new products made locally.

We went around 3:30pm and it seemed like they were closing. Not many samples out and nothing really happening on the farm. no one to talk to on the outside at all. Samples were very good as was the maple walk. My nine year old was pretty disappointed.

Thanks for visiting. We are open until 5 pm each day and always have samples of our 15 varieties of cheese and 4 grades of maple syrup open for sampling and explanation. We invite folks to watch how we hand wax our cheese for safe traveling but by the time of day you were there we might have been done dipping it in wax so we could have it all labeled up and put away by closing at 5. Our outside activities are self guided with most folks walking on the maple trail with their family and checking out our maple sugar house. Someone is at the sugar house when we are actually boiling the sap into syrup. However, 2014 was a very short maple season lasting less than a month with actual syrup being made only 14 days as we need a night below freezing and a day warm enough for sap to flow so you must have come a day when the weather was not correct for maple syrup making. Unfortunely Mother Nature does what she pleases and we can't control the days we can actually be making the syrup. We hope you were offered a chance to see our 8 minute video which gives folks more idea of the tapping of the maple tree process and how the sap drips out like water.

Regardless of the time of year we travel to VT, we always make sure we schedule a stop at Sugarbush. Not only is everyone who works here patient, kind, knowledgeable, and entertaining, but they produce our favorite Maple syrup!!!

So glad you enjoy coming back to retry old favorites and experience some of our new products. We are just finishing up our 2014 maple season with about 8000 trees tapped each making about one quart of pure Vermont maple syrup.

My Daughter and I visited Sugarbush Farm yesterday, and my daughter (who is 2) has not stopped talking about it. We live in Vermont, and I am embarrased to say this was our first time to the farm. I now know I should have visited sooner! We will be returning again as soon as we need more cheese or syrup. The Farm is owned by a lifelong Vermont Family, who are eager to educate you about the different cheeses and syrups they produce. They are very generous with their samples, which is great because everything is delicious! There are not many animals there now - only cows, but I think they have more later in the spring. My daughter loved seeing the cows, who come right up to the fence to visit. She also loved their dog, Bentley.
There is nothing fancy here, just a family doing what hey love, running their farm and educating their visitors -- and that's all you really need. If you want to see the real Vermont, this is where you need to come.

So glad you enjoyed your visit to the farm. The rest of the farm animals come out to the visitor area about Memorial Day- usually a rabbit, some goats, chickens and a new baby calf. The reason one of the larger calves was so friendly to your daughter was that she was last summer's "baby" calf and got lots of love from many little people all summer. I sometimes think before the end of the summer the calf thinks of herself as human and when she goes to join the other calves in the winter she misses lots of human company so , she's always tickled to find a new person to make friends with. Its jus ttoo cold for all the animals to be outside all winter and the calves she saw are able to run into the barn when its snow and windy.

On the last day of our vacation we decided to visit Sugarbush Farm, and we were blown away by their food. They offered us a free tasting of their homemade meat and cheese, as well as their maple syrup. Who knew there were 4 different types! Their 10 year aged cheddar was amazing, as was their venison. We will be ordering our syrup from them in the future!

So glad you enjoyed your visit. We are busy making maple syrup here at the farm and hope to produce a good crop ready for our visitors in the coming year.
