  • Was a bit overwhelming with the continuous flow of tourist buses coming through. The maple Creamie was delicious though. Pretty location but lack the authentic feeling due to how crowded it was.  more »

  • Great visit, first time getting sugar on snow. My children had a great time! Enjoyed the New experience. Will definitely be back next year.
  • Serious Vermont maple production! Owned by the same family forever, super friendly folks, fantastic creemies, lots of maple, and their own grass fed beef. Check out the goats, walk the woods, buy stuff.
  • Nice folks. Great food and gifts. A must-stop as a tourist in central Vermont. But we locals love it too.
  • You can try all the grades (Light to Dark) of Maple Syrup produced along with a variety of Maple products sold in the gift shop. It takes about 40 gallons of Maple Sap boiled down to make 1 gallon of 100% Vermont Maple Syrup. Owner Burr Morse who is part of an eight generation Vermont farm family that owns and operates the Morse Farm Maple Sugarworks explains the process in depth during a short film. The Morse ancestors who helped settle Central Vermont were taught how to tap maple trees by Native Americans. Hot rocks were used to evaporate the sweet sap until only sugar or “sinzibukwud” remained. Pioneers could boil a year’s supply of sugar thus making Americans self-sufficient in sugar production. Ben Franklin promoted massive sugar production in the Northeast to make the country less dependent on “foreign” sugar.
  • 8th generation maple syrup making! The owners are very kind and enthusiastic. Maple popcorn is da bomba. Just about rightfully modernized, yet carrying the feeling of old-farm atmosphere... lesser of commercialized feeling. Every corner carries some sort of humors... even the intro video runs very funny & entertaining.
