We Get To See
Their Front Ends Tomorrow!
our first day in Woodstock, Vermont, we went to the Billings Farm. This was a
wonderful place....an actual working farm, with an excellent museum, dairy barn, ice cream
place, 1890's farm house tour, etc. This was perhaps the most unique
beginning to a honeymoon in history, but it was GREAT FUN! Being normal is
obviously not our goal, here!
This farm was developed by Frederick Billings, who
was one of the original conservationists anywhere, way back in the 1800's. He
planted 10,000 trees around the area, and basically "invented" the beautiful
natural surroundings of Woodstock. Some really good pictures and information can be
found at http://www.billingsfarm.org/.
Before leaving the Woodstock area, we visited yet
another farm, waaaaaaaay up on a hill with a beautiful view of the mountains and valleys
along the way. It was called Sugar Bush Farm, and is a maple sugar farm and cheese
making place. After having sizable samples of waaaaay too many kinds of cheese, we
wandered around amongst the maple trees, and made our way to the chapel in the
woods. They actually perform weddings at this little tiny chapel, in the middle of
the forest, right next to the sign warning everyone to watch out for cow pies all
around. What a unique location! Too bad we were already married, only days
before!!! See http://www.sugarbushfarm.com/
