General Information:
Sugar Mill Farm is located right off I-91, with ample road frontage and fields on rte 16. We are at a potentially prime location for agritourism operations or access to other markets. The farm has historically been known for it's maple products, and has successfully hosted other operations, such as pumpkins and farm tours. Our 1/2 acre pond used to be stocked with fish that visitors would come to the farm to catch. Aside from maintaining the farm store selling maple products, we no longer operate the farm enterprises, and are looking for farmers who want to manage our 15 acres of fields, 60 acres of woods and farm infrastructure. The farmer could operate independently or forms of partnership could be explored. Please visit our website at , call Michael at (802) 525-3701 or email for photos or more information.
