COVID-19 Update:

  • You may order Farm products and prepared foods for curbside pickup at our Farm Store.  
  • Programs for educators continue remotely; all on-site programming is suspended until further notice.
  • Our 2021 season has yet to be determined. 
  • More details at: COVID-19 homepage.
  • The view east from Sheep's Knoll along the Farm Trail shows Mt. Mansfield and the Green Mountains.
  • A short side trek from North Gate Trail will bring you to the Formal Gardens at the Inn, which you are welcome to enjoy during COVID.
  • Along the Farm Trail, Lone Tree Hill has spectacular views of the Inn, Lake Champlain, and the Adirondacks.

During COVID, our 10 miles of trails are available to you for walking and exercise, and as a place to seek comfort and connection to the natural world. Explore our trails virtually.

For community safety, please:

  • Practice social distancing at all times on our trails (6 feet of separation).
  • Wear a mask when passing or interacting with others outside your household. 
  • Stay out of all buildings. All barns and buildings are closed to the public.
  • Plan ahead. There are no public restrooms, hand washing facilities, water, or trash receptacles on site. Carry out all trash.  
  • Do not visit the farm if you have signs of respiratory illness.
  • Come back another time if our Welcome Center parking lot is full.
