Made in Vermont Tour 

 Due to Covid-19, Made in Vermont Tours will not be offered until further notice

Wednesdays  June – Columbus Day at 9:30am

 

Join us on a journey to some of Vermont’s outstanding producers. We will begin the day with a visit to Vermont Artisan Coffee & Tea Co., to tour the roasting facility where their fine boutique coffee is crafted. Other stops along the way include Cabot Annex, Danforth Pewter and Champlain Chocolates. And then we wind our way to Emily’s Bridge: a haunting tale of love and tragedy. From there we drive through the scenic Stowe Hollow before arriving in the village of Stowe. While in the village we experience how gourmet sweets are made at Laughing Moon Chocolates, followed by a leisurely stroll around town on your own. Of course, we can’t end without stopping by the Alchemist Brewery to sample a flight of their offerings. Tours are offered Wednesdays and depart at 9:30 AM from the Stowe Visitor Information Center (51 Main Street, Stowe, VT). Please arrive at least 15 minutes prior to tour departure time. Due to limited space and time, children that require child seats are ineligible for this tour.
