Taylor Farm, Londonderry, VT

Taylor Farm

We travel to and through Vermont a lot, and usually we are on a schedule to get to a destination by a certain time.  We have passed Taylor Farm countless times, but have never stopped.  It is one of those places that looks cute, but we are either going too fast or don’t have enough time, so on a recent leisurely trip, we made the time to stop.

There is a sign right along the road, and there is a red farm building shop you can see from the road.  As I pulled in, there were a bunch of chickens wandering in the parking lot, so I carefully pulled into a spot (as the kids shrieked that I better not run over any chickens!).

The shop is full of goodies, from maple syrup to cheese, local goods like soaps, yarn, and more.

We didn’t have a cooler with us so we bought a small block of cheese to eat on the way to our destination.  They had some great cheese to choose from, and I pretty much wanted one of everything!

They make their own cheese too!

The kids were grouchy after being in the car for a long time, but when I saw food and brushes in the shop by the side door, I grabbed some and took the kids back outside…

Outside, there are signs pointing in the direction of animals.

The kids were still whining and complaining when the chickens came out.  And wouldn’t you know, a big pot belly pig noticed the commotion and waddled out from under a tractor.  The girls were instantly besides themselves and had a blast hanging out with the pig and the rest of the farm animals.

This is such a cute place to visit in Vermont.  I love supporting local and it was the best break to stretch our legs!  Next time I come through I hope to be prepared with a cooler so I can grab some cheese on the way home.

    That looks like so much fun! I want to go brush ALL the animals. And, uh… also take my kids? (I’ll go even if they don’t). 😉

    What an awesome place for a stopover especially if you’re in for a long drive. I think it’s really nice that the guests get a chance to feed and pet the animals in the farm! So cool!

    Oh my goodness! This reminds me of my honeymoon! We actually went to Vermont about 20 years ago to check out getting jobs at Burton Snowboards and the rest of the time was well, the honeymoon! We rented a car and drove all over the country side with a PAPER map with no where to go, no one to see, nowhere to be at any given time. It was so awesome and was almost as if we had the whole state to ourselves! The farms were the best part. We’d come up on places like Taylor Farm, Dakin Farm etc. and they would have all sorts of cheese and sausage samples (so much that you could make a meal out of it!). This really brought back some memories! Loved reading your post!

    Wow, the shop looks pretty neat. That’s really cool that they make their own cheese too. Seems like a good place to visit. Thanks for sharing!

    We love taking our children’s to local farms. There are so many great memory making opportunities at a farm.

    I don’t get out to Vermont much, in fact I have never visited there but would definitely like to! Sounds like Taylor Farm is a must see stop! What is in the cheese called “Sambal” and which one did you buy to take with you on the car trip? That Garlic Peppercorn sounds nice!
