Merck Forest and Farmland Center is a non-profit educational institution with a mission to teach and to demonstrate the benefits of innovative sustainable management of forest and farmland. We offer a variety of seasonal recreational opportunities including rustic backcountry cabins and campsites for rent and over 30 miles of forest trails for recreational hiking, horseback riding, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing. We produce farm and forest products for sale and Vermont-Certified-Organic maple syrup. We conduct educational programs specializing in environmental sciences, sustainable agriculture and silviculture for students, adults and apprentices. Through education we seek to encourage our visitors to engage in the activities of a working landscape, and to become good stewards of the land.
