Chocolate Heaven in a Barn

The Chocolate Barn started life in 1842 as another type of barn – it originally housed sheep. Part of the largest sheep farm in Vermont at the time, and known as Bottum Farm for the family who owned it, the barn retains its old mortise-and-tenon structure and original roof.

The Chocolate Barn itself opened its doors in 1976, and since 2010, it has grown into a thriving business by husband-and-wife team Sue Balutis and Tom Huncharek. Sue and Tom bought the place from original owner Lucinda Gregory, along with her famous fudge recipes and 2000 chocolate molds. As their business grew they added thier homemade ice cream to the offerings.

On any given day, you’re likely to find locals looking for heavenly chocolate or ice cream treats, as well as visitors from around the Northeast – and as far away as Japan, Germany and Italy!  For years loyal customers have been savoring our hand-dipped chocolates, decadent homemade fudge and chocolate made in our vintage molds.
We love that some have even sent us letters telling us just how much they love our chocolates and homemade ice cream.

We look forward to indulging your passion for chocolate and ice cream!
