In 1986, David and Lucy Marvin purchased a small building in the Village of Johnson, next to the Johnson Woolen Mill. With a desire to open doors in time for the fall rush, they quickly made modifications to the space. The building, rich in history as a former schoolhouse and blacksmith shop, was transformed into Marvin’s Country Store..
A small, thoughtfully designed space, Rick Mayotte’s sugarhouse is set up for high syrup production. He’s running over 50,000 taps across beautiful land in Fairfield, Vermont, and he hopes to increase his production in the coming year.
“I have always been under the belief that if you drill too many holes, you kill your trees. You can have the nicest operation in the world but, with sugaring, you make your money out in the woods. So, you need to take care of your trees. Tree health is the most important part.”
