When smoke is in the air….
You know that spring is officially here in Vermont! Today we went to visit Sugarbush Farm, a family run farm just a few miles from our Woodstock, Vermont Bed and Breakfast. If you visit us here in Central Vermont, we highly recommend that you visit the Luce family at their farm, known for excellent waxed cheeses (great to take home with you), and Maple Syrup made right on their hillside farm. They have a new, energy efficient evaporator that makes shorter work of boiling down the 40 gallons of sap that it takes to make just 1 gallon of syrup.
Please make sure to call ahead if you plan to visit them, the back roads can get a bit muddy this time of year, and you’ll want to make sure that they are still boiling.
All of this talk about maple syrup can make you hungry, I know, it happened to me. So, what to do but make a trip to Simon Pearce Restaurant, just down the road from Sugarbush Farm, in Quechee, Vermont. The wonderful folks at Simon Pearce always make you feel special, and lunch today was delicious as always.
We look forward to seeing you soon, and hope that you enjoy the many things that there are to see and do near our Woodstock, Vermont boutique Inn!
