Personable Proprietor, Super Syrup!

It was off-season, so we knew we wouldn't find any tree-tapping, but we were delighted to find the shop open -- and to meet John Plummer himself behind the counter. Their... read more

Unfriendly. We did not get a tour even though we spent money and they started getting sap from the trees 2 days ago. Better off buying syrup elsewhere...

We are sorry you had an unfriendly experience. We pride ourselves on our hospitality and we give tours with any purchase to anyone who wants one. Did you ask for a tour? We are always happy to show you the sugar house and explain the process. I don't know if we were boiling at the time you were here. We... More

need I say more? Go to your local supermarket to check whether this is a very fair price or not. (hint, it is)

We had such a wonderful visit. It is a husband and wife who tap their own trees and make maple syrup and maple sugar and maple cream. The wife so nicely showed where everything was made and told us what they do. Such a pleasant time.

After leaving the Grafton Inn, we stopped here to buy some Maple syrup to take back to PA. The onsite store has a nice display of maple products, and the is very friendly. However, there really anything different from other maple syrup places in Vermont. It's worth a stop, and you won't be disappointed. But you can say this about... More

Driving south from The village of Grafton, past the pond, you'll see the quaint handmade sign for "maple syrup, visitors welcome." We certainly were warmly welcomed and given a very nice tour by Debi, one of the owners. We got a great picture of their lives making and selling maple sugar--it was the highlight of our day. They sell their... More

Enjoyed our tour of the sugar house with Debe Plummer especially since it differed from our visit to another farm. Plummer's operation was modern with a huge piece of evaporation equipment and transportation of the raw sap from the trees through a tube system directly into tanks outside the sugar house. They have a small shop where we bought Amber... More

This is a MUST if you are travelling to Grafton. It's a real maple sugar farm. We went in October which is not the maple harvesting time of year, but the owner was great. He gave us a personal tour, explaining all the steps in harvesting sap from the trees (it's surprisingly "high tech") and how they process the sap... More

Touristy but fun. All sorts of stuff to keep the kids quiet during a long road trip, but watch the maple sugar or you will have the kids bouncing off the walls in the car. lol

At $55 per gallon it's a bargain. It's a few miles from Grafton on the Townshend Road. Easy to find.
