You may have chosen to stay with us here at the October Country Inn because you’re looking for an authentic Vermont experience. What could be more authentic than staying at a Vermont farmhouse converted into a family owned and operated country inn? Well, you might want to dine at a Vermont, family owned and operated working farm as well. Farm-to-table dining has become an marketing ploy that is often quite a distance from the farm to the table. Not so at the Cloudland Farm. Located four miles up a dirt road near Woodstock, with the Appalachian Trail running through the property, Cloudland Farm offers dinner service by reservation most Fridays and Saturdays. This is true farm-to-table dining, the table is on the farm.
Cloudland Farm is a diversified working farm which has been in the Emmons family since 1908. The spectacular views on the four-mile drive up scenic Cloudland Road are part of the whole experience. At the farm, visitors are free to take photographs from the road of the farmland and any of the animals that may be in view. This may include black Angus cattle and calves, horses, laying hens, Cornish-cross meat chickens, turkeys, the barn cats or pigs.
Coudland Farm also offers farm products for sale. The on-site market features natural Angus beef steaks, ground beef, roasts, beef sausages, beef jerky, pastured pork, and pickles. The Farm Market also offers local maple syrup, local cheeses, and other made in Vermont products. The farm market is open on Thursdays from 10 to 3 and on Fridays and Saturdays 10 to 5. Call (802) 457-2599 to make a reservation, inquire about the market, or ask for directions,
