Reviewed· March 6, 2017 "Cider Donuts to Die For" Best breakfast at a maple syrup sugar house in the Pioneer Valley!! And their homemade cider donuts fresh from the oven ARE TO DIE FOR !! And, you get to watch the sugaring process, the old-fashioned way on a wood-burning stove, and in modern equipment - totally cool!

"Super fun way to support local agriculture and experience the deliciousness of maple sugaring" Beginning in mid-February and lasting only until mid-April at the latest, maple sugar shacks across New England harvest sap and transform it into maple syrup and offer breakfast... "The North Hadley Sugar Shack is one of these. The waffle with a side of maple syrup and bacon ice cream alone is worth the trip! The effort is a full family one. You can learn about the process and watch it happen before your eyes as you speak with the family members to understand how it's done. They even kindly offer free samples of the warm, delicious syrup. A nice weekend activity which helps support local agriculture during an otherwise difficult time of the year, weather-wise."

Their Market really focuses on local items including, dairy, meats, spices, ice cream, etc. The bakery is where it's at, with homemade cider donuts, pies, breads, and various forms of Maple-glazed everything. A small deli, gourmet grocery, fresh produce, and some frozen food. It is a bit touristy, maybe stopping back in late Spring would be a good bet to try their own maple ice cream, or especially in the Fall to experience their Harvest and Pumpkin Festival and see their farm animals."
