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 white 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.

Robert was very knowledgeable, friendly, and his whole experience was amazing! Even though we were not here during the regular season, we still learned so much and got to taste all the different types of maple syrup. It is also great to hear all of the other experiences Robert hosts and how they benefit his nonprofit for the local community. If you are thinking about doing this or any of Robert's other experiences, you will not regret it.

This was a great experience! Robert is obviously super passionate about what he does, and it really shows in his whole presentation. We’re definitely planning to return for his other experiences ☺️

Robert was wonderful! We learned so much about the art of sugaring and how climate change is really affecting the process. The maple syrups we tried were absolutely delicious. Definitely the best experience on our Vermont trip!

Our family thoroughly enjoyed this experience! Robert was an excellent host, and teacher! Our children had a great time too. We all learned so much about the maple syrup making process and even got to see adorable lambs on his stunning farm. We highly recommend this experience!

If you decide to learn where your food comes from, then this experience is one of those ways. Maple syrup making is an involved process and is labor intensive. Thankfully the work has been done for you and you get to avoid the cold winter weather in a steamy cozy shack and learn about the process. There is a healthy dose of tree care-taking, capillary action, photosynthesis, maple drinking, maple chewing and maple steam breathing. :) If the weather is too cold to ski and the slopes are icy, come here and learn about the process.

What an amazing experience to learn the process of making maple syrup start to finish. It was that much more special that the experience was private and in a small sugar shack with the steam of boiling sap filling the room with a sweet aroma. The sugar on snow and the maple tasting just made the experience so magical. Robert was extremely informative and very patient with my toddlers. Robert also makes his own maple syrup bottles that are beautiful and make for a great take home souvenir. We absolutely loved the tour and would highly recommend it.
