“Our whole family had such a great time visiting your factory! It was educational and fun. Glad to see things still being made in America.” – Kate S., Washington D.C.
Our factory is open year round (7 days a week) except Easter, Thanksgiving, Christmas, & New Year’s Day.
We recommend planning to spend about 1:15 minutes on-site at the Vermont Teddy Bear Company factory.
