Vermont Cider Donut Trail

Contributed by: DigInVT Staff

Explore the Vermont Apple Cider Donut Trail!

Do you travel for donuts? We do! We love apple season for many reasons, because we know it is actually apple cider donut season!

Apple cider donuts are the treat you get after doing the hard work to pick the best apples and if you enjoy them as much as we do, we've  got the trail for you!

Cider donuts are the best when eaten hot and fresh from the fryer. The best ones are crispy on the outside and are soft, light, and filled with the sweet flavor and spices that taste like Fall in Vermont.

 

Yates Family Orchard | Hinesburg, VT

Known for their signature “Dreamee", a fresh from the fryer hot cider donut is topped with a maple creemee from Kingdom Creamery. We recommend sharing it with your favorite person.

Shelburne Orchards | Shelburne, VT 

With 80 acres of apple trees on the shores of Lake Champlain in Shelburne, Vermont….This is a picturesque place to enjoy world-famous cider donuts. During your visit, the kids can enjoy a cup of apple cider, while the parents can sample the orchard’s Dead Bird apple brandy.

Hacketts Orchard | South Hero, VT

Made fresh daily in their bakery.  Try a combination bag of plain and sugar/cinnamon tossed and enjoy a leisurely drive through the islands.

Burtt’s Apple Orchard | Cabot, VT

Surrounded by the Cabot hillside farms and the Green Mountains, Burtt’s Apple Orchard is the perfect place to enjoy your donuts on a walk, and then a sit down for a breather when you’ve eaten too many.
