Pet, groom and say hello to over four dozen barnyard animals at this farm 1 mile north of town on VT 30. Look for the large cluster of red barns (or listen for the goats!). Out back, you can also walk, run, bike, ski or snowshoe on the farm's network of recreational trails. Summer food trucks and a year-round calendar of special events add to the appeal.
