Robb Family Farm

Southern Vermont

Run by the same family for more than a century, this 400-acre farm hosts maple-sugaring demonstrations in early spring; it also offers free sugar-house tours and sells maple products and organic beef in its gift shop year-round. From Brattleboro, follow VT 9 west to Greenleaf St, then continue 3 miles up Ames Hill Rd and look to the right.
