Það sem verður gert

Your private group (up to 10 persons) will learn the process of making maple syrup from sap. I will guide you through a tasting of this years syrup and explain how to grade maple syrup. We will then try some sugar on snow you will never forget!

Maple sap runs when the days are above 38 degrees and the nights are below freezing. If the sap is not running, I will boil water (sap is 97% water) and for the class if sap is not running during the class. If the dates that we have listed don't work for your time frame, just send me an email and I can see if we can find another time for your truly Vermont experience.

We will have a maximum of 10 people since the sugar house is small and Covid Regulations from the State of Vermont- we are not a giant production house that does thousand of gallons per year. Children under 5 are free. We at most make 50 gallons, most of which I bottle in my handblown glass!
Other things to note
Part of the experience will be outside to see how sap flows from the tree into lines hung on maple trees. Inside the sugar house, we'll have the evaporator boiling (sap in season water the other times) . .

I have been producing small-batch award-winning Taft Hill Farm maple syrup for more than 25 years. Come have a tour of our maple bush and sugar house, and taste our maple syrup. Our Historic (President Taft's Father born here) mountain-top farm is nestled along Sadawga Brook and has old-growth maple trees that have been here for 250+ years.

Taft Hill Farm got its name from Peter Rawson Taft, the grandfather of President William Howard Taft. Alphonso Taft was born at the farm in 1810 and was President Taft's father. I have been farming this land since 1993 and I love to share my passion for farming in all seasons.

Um samtökin: West River Community Project



The West River Community Project, housed in the West Townshend Country Store on Route 30 in West Townshend Vt, was established in 2010 to help foster the revitalization of our community in the West River Watershed. First, we wanted to create a public place to gather, make music, celebrate events and show art. We wanted to support sustainability and local development in the local foods movement.

Þetta er upplifun með félagsleg áhrif og West River Community Project fær 100% af því sem þú greiðir fyrir upplifunina.

Staðsetning

We will meet at the sugar house by the side of the brook. Look for a black pick-up truck with a Parking sign on the back. It is on the left side of the road 1/4 mile before you come to our farm house. We'll take a look at our sugar bush and see how sap comes of the trees. Potential bonus side trip: we may have some newborn lambs/calfs that we can visit in our nearby pasture if you are interested.

What a wonderful experience with Robert learning about his experiences and interests as well as the Maple syrup making process. What an entertaining and interesting time and it couldn’t have been better. We would love to come back for some of his other experiences.

Robert's enthusiasm was infectious which makes his product wonderful. He is a great teacher. I walked in to the class knowing nothing about maple syrup except that I loved it and walked out with a new appreciation.

My boyfriend and I did the tour and really liked it! The GPS took us down a random dirt road so we were kinda bummed we missed the first part but Robert was an awesome host! He was very knowledgeable and engaging. He is multi-talented and very friendly too! Learned a lot I didn’t know about the maple syrup making process and great that profits from the tour go to town non-profit. Definitely worth the stop!

Robert has a passion for making syrup and the process through which it’s made. He is a fantastic orator. The most surprising thing was learning that Robert is also a world-renowned glass blower! His farm is beautiful. I highly recommend the experience.

If I could give this experience 100 stars I would, I’ve done several Airbnb experiences in the last few years whenever I travel and this was by far the best. Robert was passionate and knowledgeable, so interesting, funny and a great storyteller. His maple syrup is the best I’ve ever tasted, and my friends and I will be raving about our time here for years to come. We hope to come back some day and do one of his other Airbnb experiences soon!

We drove an hour and a half to do this maple sugaring experience even though it was not sugaring season. It was challenging to find and when we saw his crazy neighbor's signs about nudists and such, we thought it may be his house and thought about bailing, haha. So glad we didn't! He has an adorable personality and smile and was very entertaining and interesting. His passion and love for doing this the traditional way is what makes this a 5 star experience. We loved learning about the maple syrup, tasting the different types, tasting the candy, seeing the taps and the things used to make it just right. We were appalled to learn how global warming has decreased the productivity of the maple trees but glad that this information was shared. We would definitely recommend this experience and wish we could also do Robert's glass blowing experience as well. Don't hesitate to do this any time of year!
