Trillium Hill is a small, diverse farm in the Champlain Valley of Vermont. They grow vegetables, raise beef cattle, maple syrup, and operate a farmstand. They pride themselves on tending to a small piece of land and strive to better it in the process. They are located in the village of Hinesburg, directly across route 116 from the town hall.
The farmstand is stocked with fresh produce from the garden, their own maple syrup, and grass-fed beef in addition to local chicken and duck eggs, local meat (including pork, chicken, lamb, rabbit), and sustainably harvested salmon. They sell local caramels, honey, cheese, yogurt, vegetable ferments, cards, tee shirts, and more!
The farmstand is open during daylight hours from mid-March through Thanksgiving week and is self-serve.
Enjoy a Walk on the Farm
The two mile loop around the farm property will give you a good idea of a working farm. You'll pass the two main growing areas that contain the hoop houses and gardens, as well as a sugarhouse, and likely you'll spot the herd of grass-fed beef cows. You may even spot a few dairy goats! The folks at Trillium Hill have mowed paths and foot bridges connecting various parts of the farm. Walks are not long and take guests to the top of the property with spectacular views and into the woods, through fields and into stream areas, as well.
If you go to the farmstand, follow the main farm road behind the barn and look for HART signage. If you park at the church, there is a kiosk near the baseball field with a map. The trail kiosk is behind the backstop at Lyman park. The official trail is marked with white blazes and “HART” trail markers. A map can be found at: www.hinesburg.org/hart.html.
