Was ihr unternehmen werdet

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.

Über die Organisation: 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.

Dies ist eine gemeinnützige Entdeckung, bei der die Einnahmen vollständig an West River Community Project gespendet werden.

Wo ihr sein werdet

We will meet at the sugar house by the side of the brook. Look for a black 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. If you are coming from the north set your GPS to Townshend. When you get to Townshend Common reset your gps to our address! If not it will take you over a 4 wheeler trail!

this was a wonderful experience that my husband and I went on. Robery should have his own documentary on sugaring and maple trees. 10/10 would come back.

You need this. First of all, it turns out you know nothing about maple syrup. Secondly, Robert is such a great storyteller that you're going to have a blast learning about it's history, how it's made, the local industry, and more. AND THE TASTING... seriously, have you ever tasted different grades of maple syrup at the same time? No. You haven't. And neither had I, which is why we never knew what made local maple syrup so great. Also, Robert is an incredibly fascinating, humble, and hilarious. He's done some pretty cool stuff on his life, that almost came up by accident. 100% this experience is worth every penny.

Amazing tour and experience. Robert has tons of cool info and you can clearly see his passion. Plus, the maple syrup is to die for!

Absolutely amazing! We took the one hour drive for this experience and we were not disappointed! The enthusiasm brought to the table, coupled with the knowledge of Robert for the history and process of maple syrup’ing is absolutely unparalleled. He’s a magician of flavors and we have already made the decision to do the same tasting again next year.

We got to sample what real maple syrup tastes like, learn about the process, the current market, and see the machinery all in one visit. Highly recommend!

What a wonderful experience with Robert learning about his experiences and interests as well as the Maple syrup making process. What an entertaining and interesting time and it couldn’t have been better. We would love to come back for some of his other experiences.
