Whitingham Maple Festival
& the Shearer Hill Farm Sugarhouse
Every year, just a few miles away from Shearer Hill Farm, the Whitingham Maple Festival
takes place. This self-guided tour allows visitors to tour several sugarhouse throughout our area. You can
meet the sugarers, see how they run their sugaring operation, and sample their syrup hot from the boiler - and
let us tell you, NOTHING tastes better than freshly boiled Vermont maple syrup. The sugarhouses you'll visit
are both old and new, so you'll also get to see a wonderful cross-section of maple sugaring techniques and
Shearer Hill Farm also has a sugarhouse, though it's not open to the public because every year our guests enjoy
helping farmer Bill gather sap and boil syrup. It's a really fun time. There's even been an article in the
NY Times about our maple sugaring.
If you and your family are interested in joining us for the Vermont maple sugaring events at
Shearer Hill Farm, please give us a call or email. We'd love to have you join us. You can either take the
Whitingham Maple Festival tour, help farmer Bill in our own sugarhouse, or both. It's up to you. One thing
is for sure though, you'll probably want to bring a camera, and you'll probably want to bring some fresh
Vermont maple syrup home to your friends and family. It's just that good!
