Vermont local foods are more than maple syrup (although that maple syrup they tap there is pretty darn good!).

Vermont Maple Syrup
Vermont is most famous food-wise for its high-quality maple syrup. The warmer days and still cold nights of early spring make the sap run in maple trees. Tapping that sap and cooking it down into syrup, sugar, and candies.
Learn how what goes into making maple syrup at Mount Pleasant Sugarworks in Leicester, Vermont. During maple sugaring season you can gather sap and stoke the wood-fired evaporator.
For devoted maple fans, the Vermont Maple Festival happens every late April/early May.
