Dorset Maple Syrup – In a Class of its own! Vermont is the nation’s leading producer of maple syrup and Dorset producers are amongst the best in the state! Havoc Hill Sugar House, Dorset Maple Reserve and Merck Forest and Farmland Center, of neighboring Rupert, are a mix of larger, state-of-the-art producers and smaller, generational family operations – all of whom are dedicated to producing the finest maple syrup Vermont has to offer.
Their maple syrup is available locally at Dorset Union Store, HN Williams, JK Adams Kitchen Store, and East Dorset General store.
