Our open house is our annual event and loads of fun for all ages. Come take a wagon ride behind our draft horses, Herbie and Henry with Bruce at the reins for a farmer led tour of our pastures.
Check out our spring lambs, first batch of broiler chicks, cows, pigs and chickens all enjoying the vermont grass!
We’ll have our grill going with delicious burgers, hot dogs and other farm goodies. Feel free to bring your own picnic. Meat sales available too.
A special guest from down the road.. Yves Gonnet will have some goats on hand from Midnight Goat Farm which is a small, family-run goat dairy and creamery located in Huntington Vermont. Their wonderful, pasture-raised Alpine goats are milked daily by hand. They produce handcrafted artisan cheeses from the delicious, raw milk in micro-batches. Currently in production with three varieties of creamy Chevre – plain, garlic and herbed – and will soon offer more cheese types. http://www.midnightgoatfarm.com/
Remember to please leave your dogs at home. Thank you. EVENT is RAIN OR SHINE!!!!

At Maple Wind Farm, all of our animals are raised on pasture, and our cows and sheep are produced entirely on grass. What are the health, ecological, and societal benefits of a pasture-based farm?
- The use of intensive rotational grazing builds soils and increases diversity and fertility, while reducing erosion.
- Animals are allowed to express their natural behavior, reducing stress and resulting in higher quality healthy products.
- Animals are moved daily to new pasture, naturally distributing their manure and thereby drastically reducing food consumption.
- Grassfed meats have reduced fat content.
- Healthy essential fats such as Omega-3 and Conjugated Linoleic Acids (CLA’s) are present in higher concentrations in grassfed meats.
- Food is sold locally. As consumers develop relationships with Maple Wind Farm, they gain an awareness and appreciation of the origin and production methods of their food.
- Pasture-based farming allows small family farms to thrive.
