 This farm has had only four owners since the early 1800s.  We are retiring and looking for the right someone who wants to put down roots and carry on the tradition of stewardship for this beautiful property that has enriched our lives.  We are currently working with the Vermont Land Trust on purchasing an agricultural conservation easement.
