Socks Family Farm

1 site 路 RV, Tent30 acres 路 Cabot, VT
Socks Family farm is the largest remaining piece of the Urban dairy farm, for which the road is named. When the hurricane of 1938 hit New England, farmers Bernard and Arreca Urban聽and their daughter Velma took shelter in their dairy barn, and聽watched their little farm cabin tumble down. After the storm, Bernard built a sturdy farmhouse, complete with hurricane rods in the walls, embedded in the bedrock. We live in that house, and had the pleasure of being friends with Velma for a number of years, till her death in 2016.聽We moved to this land in 2007 with our two small children, hoping to grow food and give our kids a rural childhood. We succeeded in some things, failed in others, and have many things we'd still like to try. Every season brings change, and we do our best to learn and grow from the opportunities we are given.Learn more about this land:Socks Family Farm comprises 30 acres, high in the hills of Cabot VT. Our campsites are nestled at the edges of the fields and woods. The fields are meadowland, where we pasture our animals, cut hay, and enjoy the company of a diverse cohort of grasses, flowers, insects, and birds. The fields are open, with ample sunshine and steady breezes. On clear nights, the stars are lovely, and if you're fortunate to be here on a moonless night, you'll be treated to the breathtaking sweep of the Milky Way. During the day, you can linger in the gardens, visit the sheep and chickens, wade in the pond, hike in the woods, walk the lovely dirt roads, or head out on your bike. If you're ready to range further, we're a short drive to hiking, paddling, fishing, swimming, epic mountain biking, quaint eateries, microbreweries, and more. St Johnsbury and Montpelier are the closest cities (25 and 35 minutes). Burlington is 1.25 hours, and Montreal is 2.5 hours.We moved to this land in 2007 with our two small children, and began developing a homestead. Over time, we built 2 greenhouses, a large equipment shed, planted and fenced an orchard, berry & perennial patch, & vegetable garden, made several flower gardens, set up systems for pasturing sheep and chickens, planted native shrubs and trees, and completely renovated the farmhouse. We practice organic regenerative agriculture and landscaping, with a deep commitment to strengthening and diversifying ecological systems. We offer free farm tours, and those who want to help & learn are welcome. We love the beauty of this land, and look forward to sharing it with you.

Feel Good Farm

9 sites 路 RVs, Tents150 acres 路 Wolcott, VT
This 150-acre property has been in our family for 30 years and now houses three generations. Built in 1900 it was a traditional dairy farm until the 50's and 60's when potatoes were planted on the fields for the Boston and New York markets. By the 70's and 80's it became a gentleman's farm for a retired couple from New York City and the dairy farmers nearby hayed the fields. When we purchased the property in 1993 we continued offering the hay, built greenhouses, planted vegetable and flower gardens, ran a traditional Bed and Breakfast, now airbnb. We leased some of the fields to a local organic seed company for 13 years until they purchased their own property. The farm remains certified organic and is still being hayed by a local dairy farm, the gardens are community managed using regenerative and sustainable practices when ever possible. This year in the commercial garden, seed crops will be planted once again. Much of the cultivated agricultural land is protected under the Vermont Land Trust, to ensure that it remains used for agricultural purposes. We love to share our farm and forest with others. In addition to our very intentional farming operations, you can find wild edibles tucked away on forest trails. Wildlife and wildflowers abound. Views and sunsets. Check out the 968 acre wildlife management area that abuts the property. Plenty of trails through the woods leading to Wolcott Pond and hidden beaver huts and dams. Children 16 and under no charge but before booking please contact us to let us know how many children and we'll send a discount code. so you won't be charged when indicating number of people in your party. Our little pond behind the big greenhouse has filled up a bit more this spring which you are welcome to use for dipping or frog watching. Starting in June the outdoor kitchen and sun showers will be available for guests use. We can host large parties with advance notice.
