Sugar on Snow time is almost here!
Sugar on Snow at the Morse Farm is a Vermont tradition!
Sugar on Snow will be served every Friday, Saturday and Sunday in March. Check back here in late March to see if the season will be extended in to April!
Enjoy our 100% pure Vermont maple syrup boiled to a soft ball stage and poured over shaved ice. A sweet maple taffy will form as the hot syrup meets the coldness. You’ll sink your fork in and enjoy the sticky sweetness! Enjoy a dill pickle to offset the sweetness and a raised donut to soak up the extra syrup.

“I grew up with a chain saw in my hands. Through the years, I have found many interesting shapes in the trees while cutting sugar wood. They now stand around our sugar house as works of folk art. People sometimes call me an artist but I say… I’m no artist, I’m just darned good with a chain saw!”
The Woodshed Theatre
The Morse Farm Woodshed Theatre is a unique structure made with walls of sugar wood. Inside, a humorous and educational video plays about the Morse Farm maple process. It is narrated by Harry I. Morse, Sr., the crusty sixth generation Morse sugar maker and father to Burr. While in the theatre, relax on our maple stump seats, enjoy the show and look at the artifacts. If you look close, you will find our example of dogwood among the other labeled sugar woods. Folks always leave with a smile.
Plan To Visit All The Seasons
Winter means skiing, sliding, snowmobiling and skating and stopping by the Morse’s for Vermont breakfast fixin’s and delicious natural snacks to enjoy around the fire. Join us for the day and enjoy our cross-country ski and snowshoe trails at the Morse Farm Ski Touring Center!
In March it’s Sugarin’ Time and the Sugar House is surrounded by a cloud of steam with visitors lined up for their annual taste of sugar on snow — hot maple sugar turned to taffy when it’s drizzled over shaved ice and served with a fresh donut.
Summer brings many visitors to Vermont and Morse Farm goes all out hosting special craft and antique fairs, and our farm stand offers the best of the region’s fruits and vegetables.
The Foliage Season lasts from about Sept. 20th until Columbus Day in our area, and the views of the autumn splendor from the Morse’s hillside are spectacular. Enjoy a real maple creemie and walk along our nature trail to get the full effect.
