We use the farmhouse on weekends, it is only a short distance away from our home in Brandon. Our business is Visual Learning Systems, where we produce educational science software, etextbooks and online video subscriptions for K-12 classrooms. www.visuallearningsys.com
We purchased this hilltop farm as a weekend getaway, and for the beautiful pastures where our sheep graze during the spring, summer and fall. There are also many wild apple trees - and every fall we make cider from these delicious, tart apples. In the spring, we tap the maple trees and make enough syrup for our family and friends.
The property is one of the few remaining farms with open fields in Goshen. The land is situated next to the Green Mountain National Forest which provides endless possibilities of outdoor recreation, including xc skiing, hiking, swimming, boating, birding and fishing.
