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.

We bought this farm at the end of 2015 and it’s been open to the public ever since. In 2021 we finished construction of a mile-long ADA-accessible recreation path, that includes a boardwalk over Scott’s Cove and connects to seven miles of recreation trails between the city and the Canadian border.

The farm is about more than recreation though. We are restoring a wetland and working with local Abenaki to plant native species there. We are clearing invasive plants and welcoming community gardeners. And, schoolchildren enjoy the land as a natural classroom.

We hope you get to visit!
