University of Vermont

Horticulture Research and Education Center


Open to the Public

The Hort Farm is open to the public when staffing is available and research procedures do not preclude public access to the facility. Generally, the facility is staffed Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., and during special events (closed on weekends and holidays). You are asked to sign in at the Blasberg Building before beginning your tour of the property.  There is a "Woodland Walk" which is a self-guided tour that describes the collections in detail. 

Directions to the farm from campus:

The HREC is located behind GE Healthcare (former IDX) and the Heritage car dealerships off Shelburne Road in South Burlington. From UVM campus, follow Spear Street south to Swift Street. Take a right at the light and follow Swift Street to the end. Turn left onto US Route 7 and travel 1.5 miles south. Turn left at the traffic light onto IDX Drive. Travel 0.3 miles on IDX Drive and turn left onto the Horticultural Research and Education Center access road.
