Farmers Liz and Al have owned sheep since 2009. They first had sheep and goats on a Massachusetts Audubon Society property near Boston, doing invasive species management, and then bought a farm in New Hampshire in 2012. Last year they combined forces with friends Katrina and Matt to establish Morse Brook Farm. They are new to Vermont but love it here. Liz manages the sheep with Border Collies. For Vermont Open Farm week, Liz and her dog, Poe, will be doing herding demonstrations. Learn about these amazing dogs, their history, how they are trained, and how they make sheep management easier on the farm!

Contact them directly to reserve a time by calling 802-518-2155 or emailing at least a day in advance.

In 2019 two friends combined their farming ventures to found Morse Brook Farm. They raise Cheviot Cross sheep, Boer goats, and beef, and produce their own maple syrup and hay. They are hoping to add their own honey to that list in 2020. In addition, Morse Brook Farm also has yarn from their sheep available. The farmstand is open daily year round.
