If you’re looking for legit maple syrup in Vermont, the quiet and quaint Morse Farm in Montpelier is the perfect place to visit.
When I was researching things to do and eat in Vermont, maple syrup was, of course, very high on my list. Any time we visit someplace new, I always try to seek out and bring home the food items that that region is most known for.
So maple syrup, of course.
Funnily enough, I rarely use it myself. I don’t like pancakes or waffles, but the kids do. I’m not sure they can quite appreciate the difference between the “good stuff” and the garbage, but side-by-side comparisons, and getting a chance to visit a maple farm certainly help with that education process.
We had to go through downtown Montpelier to get to Morse Farm, as it sits a little on the outskirts of town. Montpelier was quite adorable. Quaint little boutiques and eateries and very much a small town vibe that was, surprisingly, bustling.
I took careful note of everything in the downtown area because, at the time, our car wasn’t terribly happy. I don’t know what was wrong with it, but that day in Montpelier was the first mechanic and garage we had seen on our trip, so I paid attention to where they were located, and what we could occupy ourselves with nearby, should they need to work on the car.
Thankfully, it wasn’t necessary.
Following the Waze directions to the farm, there were some hills and windy roads, and then eventually a gravel path led us to the farm’s entrance. It’s a little under three miles from the downtown area, not far at all.
