The Sugarbush Farm in Woodstock, Vermont is located on a hill near Woodstock Village, that is several hundred acres in size. In case you are not familiar with the Sugarbush Farm, they are famous for making great tasting, high quality cheeses as well as maple syrup products.
I was very lucky as a child do to the fact that my family had a farm, where my Dad made a living from milking cows, selling cattle and other things that farmers do to survive and provide for their family. It is a very hard way to make a living, and sadly today most of the family farms are either gone or struggling to survive.
Anyway, I had the enjoyment of being able to be around milk cows, chickens, pigs and other animals for the majority of my childhood right up until around age 14 or so, when my Dad decided to sell our family farm.
The Sugarbush Farm is open year around to the public, and each time of the year offers a different experience for visitors. There are many different areas and numerous things to see and do while you visit, for instance you can see how Vermont maple syrup and maple syrups products such as maple candy, and more, are made.
Depending upon the time of the year you visit, you can even walk along a trail, to see some of the actual maple trees, that are tapped, and are being used to gather sap from, which is later turned into the maple syrup. If you visit at a time when they are not gathering sap from the maple trees, you can still see how the entire process works through a video and a hands on tour through the sugar-house.
In the Cheese area, you can actually see how the delicious Sugarbush Farm cheese is made and prepared for storage and shipping.
