The lovely Lang House B&B in Burlington Vermont is now offering full and half day tours with Vermont Farm Tours which are led by Chris Howell, a Vermont farmer. This is a unique way to taste some delightful Vermont cheeses, wines and maple syrup.
Tours will take you to the Burlington Intervale 350 acres of rich farmlands and trails that are nestled beside the Winooski River just outside the Burlington city limits. Fourteen farms call this valley home; they produce award winning cheeses, wines, maple products and hand-made crafts.
On each of the tours you get to talk with the cheese makers, vintners or sugarers, and, of course, sample and purchase their products.
Here’s what the tours are like. The Wine and Cheese tour runs full days from Fridays to Sundays you visit three farms; Champlain Valley Creamery, Shelburne Farm and Dancing Cow Farm. This tour also includes lunch at the Charlotte Village Winery.
The Maple Tour goes half days on Fridays and Saturdays during the sugaring season of early March to mid-April, weather permitting. It starts with a pancake breakfast at a sugar house and includes a tour of the sugar house and a demonstration on how the sap is collected and made into the different grades of maple syrup.
Don’t miss the Vermont Maple Season Open House March 26th – 28th when sugar houses across the state will be open to the public.
