Whether you are a near neighbor looking to make memories close to home or a neighbor from afar planning for your peaceful retreat, romantic get-away, milestone celebration or family adventure, we are accessible enough for a day-trip or weekend and worthy of a week-long vacation.

Together we cover all the bases: fine dining, farm fresh food and ingredients, and lodging, as well as customizable tours and other farm- and food-based experiences, including workshops and classes. Our member farms span the gamut from incredibly diverse to highly specialized, offering great food, tours, and workshops as well unique products such as medicinal herbs, daylilies, and christmas trees while our lodging and dining options offer an enticing range to suit any preferences.

Dining

In addition to world-class localvore fine dining, our members offer lots of great options for eating local that are off the beaten path:  on-farm dinners, ready-to-eat food for picnicking or to take with you, frozen and preserved foods to bring home and enjoy later, as well as a wealth of local ingredients (fruits, vegetables, meats, milk, eggs, and more) available on-farm, at farmstands, farmer's markets, and through CSA programs.

Lodging

From a lakeside bed and breakfast in a quintessential Vermont village to a bucolic guesthouse farmstay, from a secluded cottage to a luxurious modern vacation rental on a working farm we offer accommodations to suit your needs and preferences. Learn more.

 

Farm Tours

We offer a chance to step into the diverse world of small farming in the northeast through tours of our member farms - see individual farm pages for tour availability and policies. Learn More.

 

Classes & Experiences

Many of our members offer farm experiences and learning opportunities that go well beyond a farm tour, from a quick latte on the hoof or a morning, picking apples, collecting eggs or pressing cider to a whole day learning to make cheese or immersed in the harvest and preparation of a farm fresh feast. Most offers are available to schedule at your convenience and can be arranged by contacting the farm directly. Learn More.

Pre-scheduled classes and workshops can be found on our events calendar and as a part of the Coop-hosted learning series: A Slice of Life: Workshops, Classes, and Authentic Experiences on Vermont Farms.

 

Markets & Events

Our farmer's markets, held in the Old Town Hall in Brookfield, offer the warmth of a village gathering with the abundance and beauty of all that is fresh and seasonal. Our events vary from on-farm dinners and concerts to classes and workshops on a wide range of food and farming topics.
