Dreams of Greener Pastures:
Liberty Hill Farm
For a quarter of a century, the Kennett family has been the proud owner of Liberty Hill Farm, a dairy farm and bed & breakfast in central Vermont. They host guests from all over the world, providing them with fun farm stories, tasty home-cooked meals and the bragging rights of staying in Vermont’s First Green Agritourism Enterprise.
The Kennett family takes great pride in being stewards of the land. Not only do they operate a green hotel, but the farm is also a Vermont Environmental Business Partner. They have helped to organize the White River Partnership to improve the health of the local White River and its watershed. As a member of the Vermont Fresh Network and founding member of state agri-tourism association Vermont Farms!, Liberty Hill Farm is able to stay close to its roots in the farming industry.
Beth Kennett (pictured above with son David and his favorite cow Winnie) wears many hats for her cooperative: she serves as a voting delegate, serves on the legislative advocacy committee, and represents the cooperative on the Vermont Dairy Promotion Council.
