Fodor's Expert Review Morse Farm Maple Sugarworks

Montpelier Industrial Site/Mill/Factory Fodor's Choice

With eight generations of sugaring, the Morses may be the oldest maple family in existence, so you're sure to find an authentic experience at their farm. Burr Morse heads up the operation now, along with his son Tom, but you can still see Burr's father playing the role of the curmudgeon in the dated video that screens in the Woodshed Theater. More than 5,000 trees produce the sap used for syrup (you can sample all the grades), candy, cream, and sugar—all sold in the gift shop. Grab a creemee (soft-serve ice cream), take a seat on a swing, and stay awhile. Surrounding trails offer pleasant strolls in summer and prime cross-country skiing in winter.
