Newmont Farm

Fairlee, VT
1,800 acres
1,350 milking cows

Open farm for all

Some people host Open Houses for a few dozen friends and family, but the Gladstones do things on a slightly bigger scale. Their annual Open Farm event draws up to 800 visitors for hot dogs, locally made ice cream and Cabot cheese. There are also activities like a photo booth, face-painting, horse-drawn carriage rides and a mechanical cow so everyone can try their hand at milking. Most important, there are guided hayride tours of the farm during which the Gladstones share what it takes to run a family dairy.

Margaret and Walt each came from farm families.
Being part of the farm feels like being part of something bigger than yourself. You see that every day that you'e out there, living, breathing the farm.
- Will Gladstone
