Day 3

We spent the morning at the Morse Family Maple Farms in Montpelier, Vermont. The family has been producing maple products for eight generations. The maple is gathered from trees by spout. Each tree has two taps of maple syrup in a season. The farm has 6,000 taps. It takes 40 gallons of sap to make one gallon of syrup. They make between 1,600 to 2,000 gallons of syrup a year. The family also has cattle, a ski resort, and two goats—Rex and James.

Good food, good friends, and good company give you a good feel down here at the Red Mill! Travelers enjoy a meal of lobster rolls, lamb, beef, cheddar soup and apple crisp at the Basin Harbor Club in Vergennes, Vermont. Set in a restart similar that which you'd find in the film, Dirty Dancing, there's vast green ways, pool houses, lake views and cottages.
