Hartshorn Maple Sugar House is now open-look for the steam at the roof and our banner


First Annual Maple Festival is coming!

When: Friday, April 1, Saturday, April 2,
and Sunday, April 3

At: Hartshorn Farm and Maple Sugar house.
54 Quarry Road, Waitsfield.

From: 11-4 pm

  • On our tours, you will learn about how maple syrup originated and what the steps are from tapping trees to the finished product-syrup. Find out what all of those machines in the sugar house do. Compare the taste of sap to syrup.

All kinds of maple goodies will be available for purchase: 

  • maple candy and cream
  • maple milk shakes
  • maple cotton candy
  • maple drizzled ice cream
  • maple creamies
  • maple pizza, breads/muffins from our pizza oven
  • Lawson's Maple Nipple Ale tasting
  • Maple cocktail tasting from Mad River Distillery
  • even home made maple soap

Until then, you can come in and watch us boil sap into syrup. Have a taste and purchase your own bottle of warm syrup. Just look for the steam at the roof and our banner announcing that we are open. 

Farm Camps, wellness retreats, and new location for the sugar house.

The Hartshorn Maple Syrup "Sugarshack" has been relocated down to the roadside farm stand. This means that you will be able to watch the sap boiled into syrup, sample it, and purchase a number of other maple goodies, such as maple cotton candy, maple drizzled over VT ice cream, pancake breakfasts, and maple candies. Stay tuned...more information as we get closer to opening.
