At Emergo Farm Bed & Breakfast, guests can enjoy a relaxing country vacation with beautiful views and a warm farm-family welcome to a sixth-generation dairy operation. The farm dates back to 1858 when Bebo Webster’s great-great-great grandparents began farming in Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom. The original barns were built in the 1890s with craftsmanship you don’t see much anymore, fastened with the pegs of traditional post-and-beam construction. Visitors can even see the original outhouse, although they don’t have to use it.
Bebo Webster, along with his wife Lori and their son Justin, work together to keep the deep family tradition going. Lori began running the bed and breakfast more than 20 years ago to diversify their business. She cooks up hearty farm breakfasts and provides behind-the-scenes tours. “Guests love to feed the calves, watch the milking and hike to our picnic area,” says Lori. “There’s no extra charge for helping with the farm chores!”
Justin, now the sixth-generation Webster on the farm, hopes to take over Emergo one day. “We’re extremely proud to carry on the Webster farming tradition,” says Lori. “To us, there’s nothing more satisfying than working the land, being your own boss, and looking forward to the change in seasons.”
