It was our last day in Vermont and it was a busy one! We started out with a trip over to Plymouth Artisan Cheese to see oldest cheesemaking operations in the US. Then, to check out the Apple & Crafts Fair – but we’ll get more into what we got there later in a post to come.
After walking around the fair for a few hours and tasting a bunch of awesome eats we were feeling like a light lunch and knew exactly where to go, Mountain Creamery!
Being that we weren’t too hungry and wanted to save most of our appetite for the amazing homemade ice cream and their famous Mile High Apple Pie (don’t judge us); we decided to split a grilled cheese with tomato & bacon. Cabot cheese is always a win especially when its gooey and stuffed with thick local bacon and tomatoes. Did we mention all of the of the ingredients are fresh from the owners farm? (Hinterland Farm)
Last but not least – ice cream & pie! Each ice cream flavor is made from farm fresh ingredients making it hard to pick, so we went with two best sellers: Vermont Maple Walnut & Pumpkin. After one taste of each you can see why locals and tourists line up for some of this incredibly creamy ice cream. They use real Vermont maple syrup and tons of walnut chunks – the perfect combo. The pumpkin was equally as rich but not as sweet as we were expecting. It was more of a subtle sweetness and we loved it. The Mile High Apple Pie definitely lives up to its name cause this pie is stuffed and stacked with apples. It might be one of the best apple pies you’ll have in your life hands down.
After eating we had the chance to meet Boris, owner of the Mountain Creamery and learn about how the restaurant came to be and a little about his background and roots in Boston. The Creamery has been there for 30+ years and has no signs of slowing down anytime soon 😄
P.S. – Make sure to check out the town of Woodstock for some great stores and sight seeing before/after your meal!
