On your way through Vermont, stop in Waterbury at one of the area’s most popular attractions - the original Ben & Jerry’s Factory. The 30-minute guided features a fun loving tour host who will tell you how this great ice cream is made, how Ben and Jerry got their start, and the good business practices that go into sourcing the delicious ingredients all the way from the cow to cone. During the week you can overlook the production process and get your question answered in the Flavorroom while you sample the flavor of the day. Finish off your visit in the scoop shop for a cup, cone, sundae or milkshake created from your favorite flavors or try a new flavor.

Discover the magic of Maple and the people that process it
Learn how maple syrup gets from tree to table. Discover more of the story and get up close to the process and people that have been making it through eight generations and some 200 years starting with ancestors who were taught how to tap maple trees by Native Americans. Walk on nature trails, watch a humorous educational video, and get a taste of sugar on snow - hot maple sugar turned to taffy when it’s drizzled over shaved ice and served with a fresh donut. Open year round for fun of every flavor from leaf peeping to skiing to sugarin’ time and warm summer days. There’s a farmer’s market in season and the gift shop with everything maple and more.
