    Robert and Gisele Gervais, along with their fifteen children, have been farming since 1960. They bought the Boston Post Dairy with their four daughters in 2007, and added a creamery with viewing windows to allow visitors to watch the cheese making process, as well as a small retail store where they sell cheeses, goat milk soaps, maple syrup and bakery items all made at the farm.

    The Missisquoi valley rail trail runs right behind the farm, and visitors are welcome to walk, jog or bike along the path.

    Sampsonville Road is on Route 105. We are approximately 3 miles East from Enosburg Village headed towards Richford. The farm is located across from the Boston Post Road iron bridge, just before The Dairy Center.

    Hildene Farm

    The barn at Hildene Farm is designed specifically to house Hildene’s herd of Nubian goats and for public viewing of cheese production from milking to small batch processing, pasteurization, aging and packaging of Hildene Farm Artisanal Cheeses. This is a micro operation with our cheesemakers, making and banking cheese year round using cow’s milk from local farms to produce havarti. After the annual kidding season, production turns to the making of fresh chevre. Goat’s milk havarti is also produced during the spring and summer seasons. The goat farming operation clearly broadens the focus of Hildene, beyond its designation as a historic home, and is now an integral part of the thriving agricultural education component of the institution.
