This Vermont inn wants guests to once again feel a link to the local farm

Recognized as Vermont’s first green agritourism enterprise, Liberty Hill Farm & Inn takes its educational responsibility to its guests and its community seriously. Stay in one of the seven guest rooms in the Greek Revival main house and enjoy scrumptious breakfasts and dinners as well as a full menu of farm activities, from milking cows to picking vegetables and berries. The inn, a member of the Cabot Creamery Co-operative, has been recognized as a Green Hotel by the Vermont Green Hotel Program, and the Liberty Hill Center for Agricultural Education works to rekindle the relationship between consumers and local farmers. For guests, that means inclusion in all the everyday adventures that make up life on a farm and meals that are fresh and local.
Liberty Hill Farm B&B was recently named Vermont Innkeeper of the Year by Yankee Magazine!
