“My great-grandmother started this farm in 1918. She ran a bed and breakfast out of the house and made maple syrup on the property. When my father was a boy, she introduced him to the Vermont tradition of maple sugaring. One of the things we love most about sugaring is being able to spend time in the woods on our 560-acre farm. We also love how the community really comes together in the spring, with people stopping by to visit when they see steam rising from the sugarhouse.”

-Jenna Baird with Jacob Powsner, Baird Farm in North Chittenden.
