Maple Syrup Lovers Package

Maple Sugaring in Northern Vermont Near Jay PeakIf you’re a foodie, you must experience a unique Vermont tradition – watch “sugaring” in action. Our local village is home to four sugarhouses. The families go back generations and believe in the traditional approach to doing business with their neighbors. Our unique relationship with the families allows us to ensure that our guests have a complete tour of the facility. If they are not “boiling” when you arrive because they are out in out in the “sugar bush” – we have an agreement where you can just wander around and pick up your syrup and leave what you owe them in jar on the counter! This is the syrup we serve with our breakfasts at the Phineas Swann. Package includes:
