Located along the Molly Stark Trail, Paradise Farm consists of 55 acres, which is wooded with Sugar Maple trees. The 200+ year old farm house sits along Whetstone Brook. There are two horse barns, many outbuildings, a hen house and the original sugar house. The farms unique history of sugaring has come and gone.
In 1954, the farm was featured in National Geographic, in the April Issue depicting sugaring scenes in Vermont.
We are very proud to revive the sugaring operation with a new sugarhouse and gift store. Our sugarhouse was built by us and is of post and beam construction. The frame came from a 200 year old building located in downtown Brattleboro. Amazingly, it was transformed into our “New” sugarhouse. It even has the original pegs that hold the frame together.
We also built our gift store. The timbers for the frame came from trees that were logged from our farm. The frame was hand hewn and hand drilled. (It was a labor of love.)
It brought us to our goal of having a sugarhouse to produce our Maple Syrup and a store to sell it in.
Our sugarhouse is attached to our country gift store and filled with our Vermont maple syrup and maple products. We have local crafts, gifts, baskets, linens and candles. We have local honey, our own farm made jams, maple cookies and a whole selection of farm made pies. We use our own syrup in allot of our baked goods. Our specialty is apple cider donuts, which come plain, cinnamon sugared or our own maple glaze. Call 802-258-2026 ahead to be sure of availability or to reserve larger quantities.
