One of the best things about this town that we’re lucky to call home is that it has plenty to offer all year round, but fall is a special time of year in Vermont and in Woodstock in particular.

The beauty of our small town goes from quaint to magnificent, and locals and visitors alike take notice with an enthusiastic celebration of all things fall. Woodstock has charm to spare in autumn, and whether you’re escaping normal life for a weekend or taking a longer break to explore the area, we know you’ll fall in love as surely we have.

Take in the Views
There’s a lot to do in and around Woodstock between September and November (more on that below), but we highly recommend time spent exploring our ‘downtown.’ Woodstock is a wonderful place to visit because it has its own identity and culture. While we’re popular with visitors, we have a history and identity beyond being a destination, which makes for a more genuine experience.

A day spent strolling through the Green – particularly Wednesdays for Market on the Green – is a day well spent, and you could easily spend an afternoon visiting the shops and taking in the sites. Get a taste of village life at the many restaurants in the area, ranging from a quick bite to fine dining.

While Woodstock proper is the quintessential Vermont small town, if your idea of scenic precludes people we also have plenty of natural beauty on offer. Visit the Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historical Park, which boasts stunning views and the distinction of being the only park in the country to focus on conservation history and land stewardship. Hike up Mt. Tom for spectacular views of the surrounding countryside and fall foliage that helps Vermont claim the nation’s best autumnal views.

Make the Most of the Season
Once you’ve experienced Woodstock life, there’s plenty of fun to be had at sites in and around the area.

Visit Billings Farm & Museum, which as the name suggests is a fully operational farm and an outdoor museum. The farmhouse dates to the late 19th century and the whole site is dedicated to teaching visitors about the history of farm work and technology. Everyday features a schedule of events, including opportunities to visit with and feed the farm’s chickens and cows. They also run special weekend events, like the Farm House Tour on Oct. 21 or the Family Halloween on Oct. 29.

Further afield, you can go pumpkin picking at Winslow Farm in Pittsford. There’s nothing more ‘fall’ than visiting a pumpkin patch, and Winslow Farm’s is a great spot for finding this year’s jack-o-lantern. The farm also has a 19th century farmhouse and a farm stand with fresh apple cider and maple syrup.

For a more challenging encounter with Vermont’s signature crops, visit the Great Vermont Corn Maze in Danville. Be prepared for a two-and-a-half hour puzzle as you plot your way out of the maze, which is grown in a new pattern each year.

If you’d rather bake your fall produce than escape from it, visit the King Arthur Flour headquarters down the road in Norwich. There’s a bakery and bakers’ shop if you want a quick visit to the oldest mill in the country. For a more in-depth experience, register for a class and learn about everything from pizzas and Indian breads to fall desserts and autumn pastries.

A Culinary Delight
If it’s seasonal delicacies you want, there are easier ways to find them in Woodstock! Visit our own Sugarbush Farm for a fun half-day sampling their maple syrup and fine Vermont cheeses, as well as learning about how they’re all made.

Events throughout the season will feature apple cider – a New England tradition [link: cider article] – and other seasonal specialties, some of which you’ll even be able to help make. And our local restaurants and bars are sure to feature specials using seasonal foods, 506 Bistro & Bar being no exception.

Your Woodstock Destination
The Fall Menu at the Bistro and the food available at 506 throughout the season will highlight the tastes of fall, including delicious maple mustard pork chops. Each morning at our Vermont Country Breakfast, you’ll be able to sample local Vermont cheddar and farm apples, with plenty of maple syrup and maple cream on hand for all your drizzling needs.

Everyday between 10a.m. and 5p.m. we have fresh coffee and tea available in the Bistro, on a complimentary basis, along with our favourite maple syrup cookies. If you miss them, fear not – you can still satisfy your sweet tooth with smore roasting by the river everyday from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.

For our adult guests, we also have several fall cocktails, including the Salty Bail (Vanilla Vodka, Caramel Sauce, Bailys, Frangelico, Milk, Salt Rim) and, to satisfy those pumpkin spice cravings, the Pumpkin Late-ini (Espresso Vodka, Milk, Pumpkin Bailys, Vanilla Vodka, Pumpkin Spice Rim).

Beyond the food, 506 also offers a host of fun, family activities this fall, from playing horseshoes on the lawn to wading in the Ottauquechee River. With stunning grounds, a lovely fireplace, and a unique atmosphere, we’re the perfect base and backdrop for your fall visit to Woodstock.

Raise a Glass to Apple Cider, a True New England Tradition

Apples are a big deal in Vermont – Woodstock alone has multiple fall festivals dedicated to the fruit and the delicious things you can make with it. Visit in the fall and you’re sure to find apple pies, apple fritters and apple butter, but the granddaddy of New England apple products is undoubtedly apple cider – a drink with regional roots that stretch back to Colonial times.

Cider was crucial for preserving crops, health and cheer during harsh New England winters, and enjoying a glass today is the continuation of a tradition older than United States.

Coming to America

Brits have been enjoying fermented apple drinks since the B.C. years, making it an old favorite by the time English settlers started making their way to the “New World.” Upon arrival, settlers found only crabapples. While cider apples are much tarter than the sweet snacking apples we enjoy today, they’re a far cry from crabapples, leaving early Colonists in a pickle.

Apples are an interesting fruit, in that when you grow a tree from seed, the apples it produces won’t be anything like the apple that provided that seed. To get trees producing the cider apples they knew and loved, Colonists had to get grafts from English trees, which happily took to the New England terrain.

Barley, on the other hand, did not fare so well, leading to beers creatively made from pumpkins, spruce, sassafras and green cornstalks. With that experimental phase in full swing, hard cider was a familiar taste of home and quickly became the drink of choice in New England.

Planting Seeds

At the time, “drink of choice” did not just mean “hard drink of choice.” Water could carry diseases like typhoid, cholera and dysentery, making cider and its alcohol content a safer alternative. Cider was seen as a digestive aid and a tonic to prevent ailments ranging from rheumatism and gout to bladder stones and laryngitis. This meant men, women and children drank a lot of cider – in 1721, one town with 40 families produced 3,000 barrels.

The hard drink was popular amongst many of the famous figures of the Revolutionary War. George Washington used it to solicit votes in a campaign for Virginia’s legislature prior to the war, John Adams drank a glass every morning and Benjamin Franklin made it the subject of one of his Poor Richard’s Almanack adages.

Vermont’s own Ethan Allen was known to enjoy cider fortified (in a 50-50 ratio) with rum. The drink, which he called stonewall, was perhaps a factor in the Green Mountain Boys’ victory at Fort Ticonderoga.

Then there’s John Chapman, a man so connected to apples that he was immortalized as the near-mythic Johnny Appleseed. Chapman, a New England native, was opposed to grafting apple trees and instead planted seeds to grow orchards, thus earning the nickname. He traveled the frontier of the nascent country and started cider apple nurseries to support oncoming settlers in Ohio, Indiana and Illinois.

Rising from the Ashes

Cider continued to be the Northeast’s most popular drink for more than century, with many New England homes running their own cider presses. But as it did with many of the country’s beverage industries, Prohibition threw a wrench in cider production throughout the area.

Temperance die-hards took – quite literally – a scorched earth approach to cider, putting orchards throughout New England to the torch. Many apple growers replanted sweeter, eating varieties, and a host of heirloom cider apples were lost. This made it harder for the industry to recover once Prohibition was repealed but recent years have seen a resurgence in cider’s popularity.

Vermont orchards have played a big role in this resurgence, with many popular varieties coming out of the state. Harpoon Brewery, located just down the road from Woodstock, makes several delicious ciders that you can try while learning about their production and enjoying delicious pretzels or heavier fare from their restaurant.

Try our own fresh, non-alcoholic apple cider at the 506 Bistro & Bar, available chilled or warmed with cinnamon. We also serve a hard cider from Vermont’s own Champlain Orchard, one of the state’s oldest continuously operating orchards.

Whatever your choice, we recommend enjoying your cider on our grounds down by the Ottauquechee River when the weather’s nice, or by the cozy lounge fireplace when it’s a little colder. And of course, raise your glasses to cider’s delicious legacy!
