Our Story - Burke Mountain Confectionery

Tom and Nancy Taylor, Burke Mountain ConfectionaryFor as long as we can remember, we have always wanted to live in Vermont. Before we ever met, both Tom and I had an unrelenting passion to be here. And now married with four kids and twenty years later, we are finally living our dream.

After running a successful landscape design company in the south for nineteen years, we knew we were ready for a change to not only cooler weather, but also to a life that was simpler, the life Vermont truly offers. Out of this simplicity is the basis of our chocolates… nothing complicated, everything delicious and pure.

Why Burke Mountain Confectionery?

We love Burke Mountain and are honored to call Burke our home. Burke is quintessential, nostalgic Vermont. From its quiet pastoral scenery to its authentic outdoor life experiences, outstanding snow skiing and riding, and notorious mountain biking, Burke lends itself to active tranquility that inspires the best in us.

When we met Sabra, she had this print up on her wall. It reminded us so much of our feelings about coming “home” that we knew we needed it in our lives!

“Tom and Nancy have such love for Vermont and it shows in their exquisite chocolates. It has been a joy to collaborate with them and I wish Burke Mountain Confectionery the very best.”
—Sabra Field, Vermont printmaker
