OverviewFour Springs Farm's beauty and rural setting makes it a wonderful place to get away from everyday concerns and hectic schedules. Intended primarily for low-impact campers who want to experience a taste of life on a farm, or who just want a quiet retreat, the campground consists of a few cabins and a number of secluded tent sites set into the edges and corners of fields and orchards. The seventy acres of fields, fence rows, streams and woodlands sit high on a southwest-facing ridge and look out over hills and valleys to the Green Mountains in the distance.
Guests at Four Springs Farm, Campground and Learning Center this season will have the opportunity to gain a better idea of what is happening on small family farms today. While relaxing in the peaceful environment of this spacious organic farm, people can observe the work going on in various places.

THINGS TO BRING WITH YOU TO THE FARM
Linens / sleeping bags for the cabins and wash house - We have cold nights in these New England mountains so you are advised to come prepared.
Boots are recommended. There is no pavement on the farm. Some areas are often wet or muddy. Tall grass and woods areas are wet in the mornings from dew.
Bug Protection and Sun Protection - This is just the right habitat so we actually have VERY FEW MOSQUITOES and black flies and a nice breeze here most of the time sends those away, but you may want to bring some protection especially if you are here in the spring.
Flashlights, lanterns and /or head lamps are recommended for site or cabin use and walking around the farm at night.
All camping & cooking gear for preparing meals over the camp fire are your responsibility.
Four Springs Farm water is excellent! It is so delicious you might want to fill your jug to take with you when you leave.
