Recognized for their award winning Pure Vermont Maple Syrup and Natural Vermont Beef, Smith Maple Crest Farm is the Okemo Valley Regional Chamber’s Member of the month for May 2024! Located in Shrewsbury, Smith Maple Crest Farm is a staple of South Central Vermont and a stunning farm amidst the mountains.

For over 200 years, eight generations of Smiths have farmed more than 400 acres of pristine Vermont countryside producing a variety of quality agriculture products. Beginning in 1790, the farm originally began as a wool production with sheep, then transitioned to cheese making, then a dairy farm, and today, Jeff and Mary, the owners, specialize in grass-fed beef and Vermont maple syrup. 

While the farm has grown over the years, maple has been one of its delicious products since its inception in 1790. In fact, Jeff’s mother, Donna Smith, introduced maple cotton candy at the Vermont State Fair in Rutland in 1970. 

When you visit the Smith Maple Crest Farm today, you’ll immediately find yourself in awe with their expansive sugarhouse equipment and operations. Visiting the farm is incredibly special. You’ll have the opportunity to learn all about maple production from the sugar makers themselves while also enjoying your own guided tasting experience! You’re in for a treat as you can sample the different grades of syrup with pickle juice in between to cleanse your palate. 

At the heart of operations, the farm is all about their customers. Customers come from far and wide, visiting both their farm in person as well as online, to purchase their high quality, locally made products you can’t get anywhere else. 

Drop by the farm to get your favorite cut of high quality grass-fed beef, local pork and chicken, eggs, steak, sausages, brisket and more. Or stop by to taste the sweetness of Vermont maple in all of its forms – VT maple syrup, cream, salad dressing, candies, marinades and the list continues. With summer right around the corner, it’s a great place to stock up for summer BBQs!
