Sugaring open house weekend in Vermont is amazing! If you flatlanders are not too far away for a visit, it is well worth a trek into the state. I have found over the past few years, that having an four/all wheel vehicle can be helpful. The mud can be challenging! Some of the roads into the sugar houses can be impassible without the proper car. The variety of sugar houses to visit is wonderful! From tiny, family run operations to large, state of the art facilities, they provide fun for all. The Whitingham event (the weekend before) features a craft fair and food in the local school, and with weather-permitting, horse drawn sleigh rides. We go here because it is so close to CT. My absolute favorite place is Corse Farm! The ride into the operation/farm is GORGEOUS! Stone walls parallel the winding dirt road and photo ops abound! Corse has a state of the art evaporator and the folks there are so friendly and proud of their operation, the syrup is amazing. I hope you can visit all the sugar houses open throughout the state. It is one heck of a day's adventure for the family! Check in often as they will be updating the schedules/events over the next few weeks, but you can get an idea of what is coming by scrolling through the previous years listed. Links below:

Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns. ~George Eliot
Yay! The map for all the participating sugaring houses is now available! This is a most wonderful time of year in Vermont and I place it right under foliage season! I have been craving the sweet stuff lately, and can't wait to stock up on the small bottles from the various sugarhouses. Keep in mind, Whitingham's open house (see previous posts) is the weekend before the statewide event. I'll be heading up in two weekends to Whitingham and am quite excited! I think the mud is going to be wicked so I have my knee high Bean boots ready! If you can squeeze either of these two Vermont events into your schedule, you will not regret it! I try to go to as many sugarhouses as possible as it is a long but absolutely fun-filled day. Visiting the smaller sugarhouses as well as the larger ones with state of the art evaporators, is quite an experience. The best part of all? The folks running the operations! I swear they are more excited than the visitors in show casing their products! And ohhhh the delicious aroma of that liquid gold! Enjoy!
