Home : About the High Ponds Farm

The High Ponds Farm is a privately owned nature preserve located in the Hazen's Notch Area of Montgomery, Vermont - 2.5 miles east of Montgomery Center. The High Ponds Farm is open to the public on a limited basis. Access is at the landowners' discretion.

The High Ponds Farm consists of 400 beautiful acres that feature orchards, pastures, vegetable, flower & herb gardens, forests, wildflowers, streams & ponds - all with spectacular views of the Green Mountains.

The High Ponds Farm produces fruits, vegetables, native perennials & maple syrup on a restored 19th Century Vermont hill farm on the Rossier Road, 2.5 miles east of Montgomery Center.

This privately owned organic farm is open to the public from late May through mid November at the landowners' discretion. Several miles of trails provide opportunities for hiking, wildlife viewing, nature study and picnicing.

Hike along several miles of gentle woods roads past numerous beaver ponds that support a rich diversity of wildlife. Along the way you'll find places to stop for a picnic and to enjoy the view. Some highlights include the Upper and Lower Twin Ponds (both beaver ponds), the Moosewood Ponds (a complex of five beaver ponds), and the High Meadow with panoramic views of the Jay Mountains.
