On the Farm & From the Farm
A day’s drive is sure to take you past one of our local farms. Over in East Albany, you can visit with the alpacas and learn about shearing and knitting with alpaca fiber at Log Cabin Farm Alpacas. Find your way out of the maze and meet the animals at the petting farm at the Great Vermont Corn Maze in Danville. See the Kingdom on horseback with a guided trail ride at DND Stables. During the winter, head out on a good ole' fashioned sleigh ride with the Perry Farm. And why not go for a llama trek while you're here at any time of year? Where, you ask? At Agape Hill Farm in Hardwick. Farm tours are also offered.
Farmers markets are a must stop and during the summer there's one just about every day of the week in at least one Northeast Kingdom town. If you don't happen upon one while you are visiting, there are plenty of farmstands such as Pete's Greens open during the week where you can get your fresh veggies, berries, local eggs, even pasture raised chicken, and more. And farmers markets aren't just for summer anymore - many of our towns have indoor markets scheduled for the winter months. Many chefs of area restaurants also frequent the farmers' market and include offerings from local farms on the menu including grass fed beef, free range poultry, and lots of fresh veggies as part of a farm-to-table dining experience.
Of course, you can't visit Vermont without picking up some maple syrup and there are lots of places to get it including at Hollister Hill Farm. Couture's Maple Shop in Westfield is also a B & B if you wish to stay a night or two on the farm.
