This 200-year-old sugarhouse, less than three miles from downtown Montpelier, is open daily year-round. But sugaring time, in March, sees the most action; this is when syrup is boiled and turned to taffy (sugar on snow) when drizzled over shaved ice. You can walk (or ski) the maple trail and see some of the 3,000 trees that produce between 500 and 1,000 gallons of syrup a year. Maple facts, history, humor and eight generations of lore—not to mention a fantastic maple-theme gift shop with maple ice cream—make Morse Farm one of the state’s most beloved attractions.
