Great Maple Syrup Stops: Sweet Maple Alpaca Farm, Vermont

March 17th, 2011 · No Comments · Destinations

Steam in Sweet Maple Alpaca's sugar shack from the maple evaporator. Vermont.If you’re headed to southern Vermont this weekend with the kisd for the Vermont Maple Open House, stop by Sweet Maple Alpaca Farm in Westminster, VT. Located less than 30 minutes north of Brattleboro, VT along the steep banks of the Connecticut river, Sweet Maple Alpacas is owned by a sixth generation Vermont farming family. (Wow, families stay in the family business in VT; no wonder it produces such great food.)  Currently the farm focuses on breeding and raising alpacas and maple syrup production.Sweet Maple Alpaca Farm, Vermont during Maple Open House Weekend.

During our Vermont Maple Open House Weekend visit to Sweet Maple Alpaca’s last year, we were able to meet the alpacas, check out their lineage, learn about their various breeds and breeding, shop for knitwear made with alpaca fibers, visit Sweet Maple Alpaca’s sugar shack to taste maple syrup, and, if we wanted, buy an alpaca.  There were lots of activities that included the kids (if getting up close with furry animals isn’t enough for them) and lots of young ones in attendance.
