Picture “Vermont Farm” and this is that farm. Clapboard farmhouse, huge old timber frame barn, assemblage of other farm buildings amid rolling fields threaded with brooks, stone walls, and giant sugar maples. The 4 bedroom farmhouse is elegant in its simplicity, with high ceilings and big windows, facing south overlooking the late 1700s barn, outbuildings, orchard, gardens, and animals grazing in the pastures. For 240 years, only two families have owned O.L. St. John Farm, a 276 acre parcel that spans a half-mile valley. In 1761, the year the town of Pomfret was chartered, Isaac Dana was granted land and journeyed north from Connecticut to clear the forest and build a farm. Isaac’s farm remained in the family until 1966 when it was purchased by another family from Connecticut. They raised beefalo, horses, sheep, pigs, chickens, guinea hens, bees, dogs, barn cats and three children. They practiced organic farming before organic was a thing. The farm's edible landscape includes apples, gooseberries, currants, rhubarb, blueberries, raspberries, asparagus and blackberries. Old logging roads crisscrossing the property are great for mountain biking and hiking. The Appalachian Trail borders the southern boundary of the property. There are multiple springs and brooks throughout the farm that could support the construction of a pond. The property is conserved with an easement with the Upper Valley Land Trust. High-speed internet. No showings on September 7th.
