  • 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 »

  • 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.
  • Great stop....for families with kids. We watched a video on how they make sugar cane, tasted syrup and their popcorn. Walked the trail and fed the goats. Then tried a maple latte, maple ice cream cones and a maple kettle corn Sunday!
  • Good selection. Lots of information and interesting things scattered around the farm. If you have never been to a Maple Syrup Farm then you will learn all about how they make it. Samples were good and the staff friendly. A great few hours for a family afternoon.
  • Having never been to a maple farm I had no idea what to expect but if this is considered normal then I totally get why everyone loves them. The staff was friendly, warm, and knowledgeable. The buildings were inviting and easy to get around and their syrup, all 4 grades, was wonderful as was their side products. Folks from out of town should be warned this is a working farm too and thus comes with all things that entails which bothered us not at all (we're from Nevada so no biggie). Overall a good time and we look forward to coming back.
  • Burr and his family do a great job with agricultural tourism--- cows and critters, tours and maple syrup. Great special meals cooked in sap and syrup, friendly staff and fantastic views. Well worth the trip up the hill to visit.
