We figure as many 40,000 people visit us each year. People are always asking about how our farm stand began, how our family got started in maple sugaring, and what Vermont was like in earlier times. We finally decided to set down our story. We sat down during the winter with our friend and writer Art Edelstein to talk about our origins and what we know about sugar making. This book is the result.
We’ve included some of our family history because we can trace the Morse family back to England in the 1600s. We know they were among the earliest settlers in New England. We also share eight generations worth of maple sugaring lore, experience, and stories. You’ll read about Vermont in the 1900s and how our farm stand got started. We’ve also included some of our most treasured family recipes, and yes, they all call for using maple syrup.
The Morses — A History of a Vermont Farm Family is our way of thanking all our many faithful friends who’ve long requested this book.”
