***WE'RE CLOSED FOR THE SEASON. THANKS SO MUCH TO EVERYONE WHO VISITED IN 2022. WE LOOK FORWARD TO WELCOMING YOU AGAIN IN SPRING 2023!***

Our campsites feature stunning, panoramic views of the First Branch of the White River in the verdant hills of central Vermont. It overlooks the shire town of Orange County, Chelsea, Vermont.

Free Verse Farm is a hilltop herb farm run by two art-making, herb-loving farmers. The property boasts twenty sloping, knoll-laden, open acres overlooking the First Branch of the White River as it passes through the scenic village of Chelsea, Vermont. We have incredible views, forest trails that offer magical woodland wanderings, and spacious campsites in our fields.

We also invite you to explore our cultivated fields of herbs and vegetables and become acquainted with the wide variety of tea, culinary, and medicinal herbs that we grow and process on our farm. You can also visit with the cows that spend their summer munching our delicious green pastures.

Our full line of herbs and herbal products are for sale via our website or at Free Verse Farm Shop, located just one mile from our farm in downtown Chelsea. Our Farm Shop offers a wide variety of fresh produce, provisions, fresh baked goods, beverages, and more to enjoy during your stay or as you continue on your journey.

AMENITIES: we offer a hot outdoor shower & sink, as well as an outhouse with a composting toilet. Each campsite has a firepit and a picnic table.

CAMPSITE DETAILS: We currently have 2 campsites open. They are located in our meadows with beautiful views of the First Branch Valley and Chelsea village. 4 wheel drive is recommended, but not necessary, and you are always welcome to hike up to your site. The site is spacious and private.

LOCAL ATTRACTIONS: We also run Free Verse Farm Shop (open: Tu-Fr 12-6, Sat 9-3), a local grocery, café, and apothecary to serve our community and visitors to the area, while supporting local farms and artisans. You can also pre-order online (shop.freeversefarm.com) to pick up in store or ship your order around the USA. The village of Chelsea hosts a weekly summer farmers market May-September on Fridays from 3-6pm (mid-May through September). In downtown Chelsea there is also a pub (The Wagon Wheel), gas station (110 Quickstop), two town commons, a small library, a general store (Will's Store), and a farm stand (Chicken Wiggle). Within 20-45 minutes of our farm you can reach the larger towns of Montpelier (state capital), South Royalton, Randolph, Woodstock, White River Junction, and the Upper Valley Region (Dartmouth College), all of which offer a wide variety of attractions and services. Upon your arrival, you will be given a welcome packet with more detailed information about our area, and we'll be happy to provide you with any other tips you're looking for.

We look forward to hosting Hipcampers and sharing our love of this land, and our region, with all who visit. We can't wait to meet you!

Free Verse Farm is beautiful. We woke up to the stunning fall views and the little town of Chelsea and it’s Valley is amazing. I completely loved it. Misha was very helpful, we arrived late in the night and he helped us with the instructions. The campsite has firepit and also provides firewood for a low cost. It has a small restroom at the outhouse.
