Fun in Vermont

Shearer Hill Farm

Vermont has a long history of inviting folks to visit their family farms.  The state even has a site called Vermont Farms! that lists activities on farms and farms that offer lodging.

So it is not surprising to see a wonderful video on YouTube that highlights one of our member farms, Shearer Hill Farm.  This video walks you through a day on their place from breakfast to tapping maple trees for syrup.  There's even a side trip you can take to Adams Farm to milk the goats!

Probably longest in the business, and one of the best known stays not only in Vermont, but also in the country is Liberty Hill Farm, where they raise prize-winning Holstein cows, allow kids to interact with calf feeding, and sit you down to farm family meals. We think Lareau Farm also sounds fun with its flatbread oven and history as a farm since 1794 (gosh, right after the Revolution!).

There are working dairy farms, alpaca farms, maple sugar, and sheep farms throughout Vermont.  It's impossible to list all the wonderful farm stays here, so check out Farm Finder on the Farm Stay U.S. site, search Vermont, and you will find at least 30 choices for your next trip.  You can even hit the 'Map These Results' button to plan your route. This (obviously) works for other states you might be planning to visit.

Come out to the country.  Stay on a farm!
