A lakeside farm reimagined by the community

Bluffside Farm is on Lake Memphremagog in the City of Newport, near the Canadian border. It has farmland, woodland, a sandy beach, and is incredibly scenic with views across the 31-mile long lake.

In 2015, we bought the farm—the largest undeveloped property within the city. We asked the community to imagine what it could be and how it could serve Newport. Three priorities emerged: recreation, farming, and nature. Since then, we have been acting on these priorities together with community members.

We recently completed the construction of a mile-long trail that crosses Scott’s Cove. See that trail and learn about the farm in this video:
