Working Farm Vacation - Southern to Central VT

Does anyone have a recommendation on a working farm vacation in Vermont? We will have our 4 boys (ages 6, 9, 11, 13) with us, and thought this would be something different and fun.

We are coming from Pennsylvania by way of NYC and Boston, so locations in southern or central Vermont would be best.

We are planning this for late July or early August.

Thanks in advance for your advice.

The first one that comes to mind is Liberty Hill Farm in Rochester, VT. They were one of the first to do this and I've heard the experience is great.

I'll second vter's recommendation of Liberty Hill Farm. It's an incredibly beautiful location, "real" Vermont even to us Vermonters. Beth Kennett and her family are just the salt of the earth, and delightfully friendly. And of course, on a real, honest-to-goodness working farm.

There may be other worthwhile farms you can find and visit, but this one is a real gem.
