Fall open house

Plan your visit

Fall is a beautiful time to visit Vermont. The late start to the season this year suggests that it should still be peak foliage on October 10! In combination with this year's bumper crop of apples this is a rare and bountiful fall not to be missed. Come for the cider doughnuts, stay for the Open House.
