swing by anytime

You are always welcome to pay us a visit. Our corner of Vermont is a quiet, beautiful getaway any time of year.

Our farm store is open and fully stocked with cheese, meats and maple syrup and our grounds are open to the public for exploring, picnicking, and visiting the D&H rail trail for walking, jogging, and biking.

For the health and safety of our animals and customers, we can't offer public tours of the barn or cheesemaking facilities.  But you can peek in the windows!


Come stay at our farm cottages and have our goats be your new neighbors. 

Choose from the historic SMITHY, the original building that was used for blacksmithing by Consider Bardwell, himself, or the FOREMAN'S COTTAGE on its own 1.5 acres with a spring fed pond, tiki hut, and “glamper” - a delightfully appointed camper that acts as additional sleeping space.

By staying at the farm, guests can participate in a number of farm activities, private cheese tastings, and learning more about the cheese making process, history of Consider Bardwell Farm, and all about our goats! Go ahead and book on AirBnB, or contact hallie@considerbardwellfarm.com for more information and direct reservations.

By Train:

While the closest Amtrak station is Fort Edwards/Glen Falls NY, it's pretty tough to get around up here without a car. 

We advise train travelers to ride Amtrak as far as Albany, NY or Rutland, VT, where they should be able to find a rental car.  There is also a bus from Albany to Manchester, VT, which is about 25 minutes from the farm.  

Travelers from New York City may also take the Metro North to Poughkeepsie, NY, where they will likely find rental cars for more reasonable prices than within the city limits.  

By Car: 

Navigation apps should get you there, but please note that most cell carriers get limited signal in our area, so take a look at your route ahead of time.
