One of My Favorite Days in Vermont Was at Bragg Farm

Bragg Farm Sugarhouse & Gift Shop on

One of My Favorite Days in Vermont Was at Bragg Farm Sugarhouse & Gift Shop in East Montpelier, Vermont. Bragg Farm has been making its own pure Vermont maple syrup for a whopping eight generations, and their farm is a fun and relaxing place to stop by for a bit.

By the time we visited Bragg Farm, we weren’t feeling very touristy. We wanted to get out of the hotel, but we really just wanted a place to sit, relax, and let Small Shaw play. That’s exactly what we found at Bragg Farm.Front-Porch-Sittin'-at-Bragg-Farm-in-Vermont

My mom and I wandered through the Gift Shop and the Maple Ice Cream Parlor while my Dad scoped out the Adirondack chairs on the back porch with Small Shaw.

The Gift Shop had Vermont crafts, cookbooks, clothes, specialty foods, and all sorts of Vermont Maple products and cheese. They’ll even ship your purchases home for you if you want them to!

We did some really good porch-sittin’ that afternoon, but there was also a swing set, goats, and bunny rabbits for the kids to swing on look at, and feed. It was a lot of fun, and totally relaxing. The views, alone, were worth buying a creamy and sitting down for a few minutes.

If you find yourself near Montpelier, Vermont next summer, head over to Bragg Farm, get yourself a creemy, and pull up an Adirondack chair. I think you’ll enjoy it just as much as we did.

  1. Bragg has the BEST maple creemees around! We would drive 45min to go there just for the creemees!

  2. My husband is from the NE but I feel like we never get to venture around when we go up there. I need to tell him about all these cool places near by! I mean he grew up in Philly and the first time he went to NYC was with me! And it wasn’t even my first time lol. PS – sending email shortly 🙂

  3. While I haven’t had the pleasure of visiting Vermont, I am ever pulled in the direction of Adirondak chairs. Bragg Farm looks like heaven.

  4. Nice photos! I’ve never been to Vermont, but this looks like a nice place to visit.
