If you've visited us before, you may have noticed we have goats, and quite a few of them. On Sunday August 27th the Vermont Sheep and Goat Association is hosting an event at our very own farm! You can read on below, or check out their website for more information, please call Meadow at 802-453-3687 to register.
We invite experienced and inexperienced “grass farmers” to come and talk about sustainable rotational pasture management with emphasis on roughage. We will be considering medium browse plants, small shrubs and trees as sustainable, renewable sources of browse for our goats. The overall farm goal is to provide natural sustainable rotational browse and pasture three seasons of the year, with the possibility of hay fields providing for the winter. We do not use any synthetic or foreign fertilizers or additions to our soil. As we will be walking several pastures and potential pastures with an eye on plant variety, wetness and roughage we recommend wearing protective clothing and water-proof footwear. Please be conscientious of farm-to-farm pathogens and wear clean footwear too. Visitors will be invited to sample natural goat products (edible and non) and see firsthand “before” and “after” pastures to assess the value vs. the impact of raising goats on browse. Free for VSGA members, $5 for non-members. Refreshments will be served. Free Samples.
Maple Hill Campsites was opened in the summer of 1964 by Mildred M. Osmun and her husand John H. Osmun. We remain a family owned and operated campsite, run and cared for by Mildred and John's daughter, Martha and her own family.
Our campsites are very private, with approximately 50' between each of them, with a choice between wooded sites and sites in the open field. Most wooded sites have access to Shadow Brook, a small brook that runs alongside our campground. Each campsite boasts its own fire pit and picnic table. The sites are primarily for tent camping, with a few sites that include limited electrical hook up of up to 20 amps. These sites can fit pop-ups or other small campers.
The campsites include a bath house with running water and hot showers.
Pets with proof of current vaccinations and use of flea and tick deterrent are welcome when properly leashed, cared for and cleaned up after.
We keep firewood here for purchase. It is dangerous to move firewood between states as it can harbor insects and diseases harmful to our forests.
