Everyone knows Vermont is the home of maple syrup and Dakin Farms is one of the oldest farms in Vermont, but do you know how it's made? Unfortunately for us, we still don't know as we got there just as they were closing. The woman manning the shop on Route 7 was kind enough to let us run it and buy some syrup to take home and some corn cob smoked turkey and a few other goodies to snack on. Sadly we got sidetracked when we set out to see the New York State Capitol in Albany and ended up missing half the stuff we wanted to see in Vermont.
Apparently this farm has been in business for about 200 years. All I can tell you is it smelled just wonderful. They have a tour to show you how maple syrup is made so if you do go, let me know how it is. I can tell you that the smoked turkey was fabulous. I don't eat bacon, but if you do, it's probably dynamite as well. If you don't have plans to hit Vermont anytime soon, you can order their products online at www.Dakinfarm.com
