Education

From internships to guided educational tours, education is paramount to the farm's mission. University departments from multiple colleges utilize the Weybridge campus, as the farm is rich in educational resources. Each year students from area elementary and high school programs visit the farm for guided tours, along with camps & home shool groups. In the spring, an equine reproduction clinic is offered to the public. Email the farm for more information on learning opportunities at UVM's "campus in Addison County." 

Community

A beacon for horse and history lovers, the UVM Morgan Horse Farm is home to the oldest, continuous Morgan horse breeding herd in the world. Established in 1878, this beautiful historic site is a working farm of 40+ Morgans that is open to the public May through October annually. The UVM Morgan Horse Farm is a must-see attraction just outside Middlebury, Vermont. 

Preservation.

The influence of the Government lines on the Morgan breed is second to none. As the stewards of this important herd and its ancestral home, the UVM Morgan Horse Farm breeds 6-10 foals annually and offers horses for sale, breeding services, and stands several stallions to the public.
