VT Grand View Farm is one of the earliest farms in the town of Washington with the initial purchase dating back to the late 1700s. The Goodling family is the fourth family to own the farm. When they moved in, the farm had not seen livestock for over 50 years. They have worked hard to reestablish its rich agricultural history through regenerative farming practices. The farm is home to Vermont’s first flock of Gotland sheep, a few pigs, and two border collies.
