This maker of Maple Syrup (The REAL Maple Syrup) continues the heritage of the Morse Family. You can learn how Maple Syrup is made and buy some real maple syrup and maybe meet Burr Morse, the current operator who also makes kettle cooked popcorn. The Morse farm has been visited by tourists from many countries. I recently visited the farm and it is just as fun as it was when I lived in that area in the 1970s..

Since it's summer, obviously no maple syrup making. There is a movie in the sugar house, but it's old and the language and the humor was not kid friendly. But it does sort of explain the process. They do have a decent size country store to buy all things Vermont.

We stopped here because it came up as one of the places to see near Montpelier. There are some cute out buildings and information of how they extract and make maple syrup.

In the tasting room you can try the different grades of maple syrup. Gift shop is very touristy but cute. I cream is also good

People working here are awesome. My daughter left her iPod there and it was turned in. Stopped back to pick it up with no problems!

No trip to Vermont is complete without seeing where maple syrup is made. Morse Farm is a working sugarhouse. Since the syrup is only made during the spring season, you watch a video narrated by the colorful family patriarch. They offer free tasting of the four grades of syrup and sell many different size jugs to take home. Now that I know it takes 40 gallons of sap to make one gallon of syrup and that is the total season production of three trees, I understand why maple syrup costs so much at the store back home.

I visited this place in the Fall of 2013. Now back for Summer 2014, I venture to the farm and ask one of the employees about the precious and funny goat. Well the goat passed away in early 2014. I was distraught. Not really but the goat was really cool.

Go to the farm to view the video about Maple production and see the cool wood art that is very imaginative. Also have a sample of different grades of maple syrup and definitely buy a maple creemee. It it delicious. You can't go wrong with visiting. Oh and don't forget to try the maple popcorn. You will smack your mother after having that.
