Davenport Maple Farm Restaurant

Now open weekends March 4th through October 29th 8am to 3pm

The family opened the restaurant in the spring of 1990 and has been open for the spring maple sugaring season ever since. We are a little ways off the beaten path but we are well worth the drive once you arrive. We take great pride in our meals and our service.  Customers come from near and far every year to experience Davenport Maple Farm Restaurant.

"In the fall of 1989 the corn was cut and a bulldozer dug a cellar hole just north of the big farmhouse. Using much of our own lumber, a new building was ready by March 9, 1990. It contained a fifty-seat restaurant, two handicapped restrooms, a sales counter, and a kitchen on the first floor. The east wall contained two large picture windows to look down on the evaporator and bottling room. Under the restaurant was storage space, a heating system and a candy room where all the confections are made. Space was also available for packaging and shipping as the mail order business grew/ The word was spread by radio, newspapers, the Chamber of Commerce, business associations, and the directory of the Massachusetts Maple Producers' Association. Large numbers of people came, especially during the spring sugar season and the fall foliage season."     -Russel Davenport

Russel Davenport's vision was to built a facility that would take products that the farm made and help to retail them at a time when the dairy farm was quickly becoming an unsustainable venture. In the early years the Restaurant was open year round and had large crowds during the popular sugaring and fall foliage seasons but by the late 1990's the restaurant was cut back to seasonal hours only during the spring sugaring season.

Fast forwarding to 2015:  The next generation of the family Maegan (Davenport) and husband Nathaniel Senser have taken over management of the restaurant and product production. They are working very hard to make upgrades and changes to bring the restaurant up-to-date. Stay tuned!
