Purchase directly from the farmer

A great way to round out any visit to Vermont and the Mount Snow/Deerfield Valley is to enjoy a little shopping.  Did you know that although Vermont ranks the second lowest in population of all the states, it ranks Number 1 in Maple Syrup production, Number 1 in Craft Breweries per capita and Number 1 in dairy cows per capita?  These stats provide you with a clear path to a “must purchase” gift or personal indulgence.

Cabot is a coop of Vermont dairy farmers and repeatedly produces award-winning cheese

Maple Syrup, Cheese & Other Iconic Vermont-Made Foods: While you can find Maple Syrup for sale in most retail shops and even some gas stations it’s especially fun to buy directly from the producer.  Just look for a “Pure Vermont Maple Syrup For Sale Here” sign and stop in the sugarhouse.  When it comes to all those dairy cows, with their great milk Vermont has some of the finest award-winning cheeses in the US.
