Just a mere 20 minutes away from our inn is a fantastic place to get delicious Vermont products called Dakin Farm. It is definitely worth a stop the next time you are visiting us in the gorgeous Champlain Valley.
Dakin Farm is located in Ferrisburgh, VT and has a rich history of using centuries old traditions and a sugarhouse that has been boiling sap without missing a season for over 58 years. This special place not only has a friendly staff to greet you and help you find what you are looking for but also has a vast amount of delicious products to choose from. You may want to show up with an empty stomach because there are lots of delicious samples to try! To start, the various cheeses are to die for. They offer a unique selection of Artisan Cheese, aged cheese, smoked cheese, Swiss, Cabot and other
specialties. The smoked cheddar is a local favorite.
You’ll also find cob-smoked turkey and bacon, pulled pork, ribs, ham, summer and smoked sausage, homemade fudge, jams, jellies, and of course, a whole bunch of Maple syrup and maple-related products. We dare you not to walk out with their Maple syrup candy! When you visit they have an informative video to watch that tells the history of the farm and the syrup harvesting process. They also have some great gift baskets if you need to take a souvenir or gift home to a loved one.
There is lots to see and taste at Dakin farm so pay them a visit the next time you are staying with us! Vermont is a beautiful place to spend a spring getaway so book yours today!
