Morse Farm Maple Sugarworks

Morse Farm Maple Sugarworks is located on County Road in Montpelier, Vermont.

When in Vermont, my mom and I naturally wanted to visit a maple syrup farm. Locals recommended Morse Farm, so off we went. Tons of land here.

The main building is their storefront, where you can buy syrup, maple cream, and merchandise. They even have hot sauces, seasonings, and other items from different companies. If you want to take home something from Vermont, this is an ideal place to stop. I may or may not have bought a few things to take home.

I sampled all four grades of their syrup. So good. Again, once you have the real deal, it's unlikely you'll want to do the artificial stuff again.

I tried a Maple Creemee, which is basically maple soft serve. Simply glorious. I wish that was a thing in the Pacific NW, but oh well.

And you can even add maple syrup to your coffee. Maple coffee?! I never knew that was a thing. You can add as much syrup as you want. You have a choice between a light roast coffee or a dark roast coffee. I went with light roast so I could taste the syrup more. Alas, I eventually added a bit too much though, because it got overly sweet for me. Oops.

You can also explore the farm.

There are a couple different buildings, and then there's the Maple Trail with various maple trees. If I had been by myself, I probably would have just walked the entire thing. With mom, though, I just got to the first few trees and turned around.

Oh, and there are goats here. I guess I should have brought food if I wanted them to really be nice and pose for the camera. I'm a cheap panda, and they quickly realized that.

You can also buy stuff from their online store.

The hours depend on the time of year. From Memorial Day through the day before Labor Day, the hours are 9 AM to 8 PM. From Labor Day to December 26, it's 9 to 6. From December 27 until the day before Memorial Day, they are open from 9 to 5.

Morse Farm was a great experience. Friendly staff. Be sure to soak in the surroundings and the view. 8.5/10
