The Cheese Board 

We have a retail store in Windsor, Vermont that is a showcase for our honey and maple products. The store also carries an incredible selection of the best cheese from Vermont dairy farms. Stop in any time to enjoy a sample of any of our cheese.

Wood Fired Pizza: Please come enjoy our brand new wood fired pizza oven. Our flour comes from the Green Mountain Flour company in Windsor, VT. That means our grain is grown in Vermont and milled in Windsor. Our Pepperoni, Sausage and Bacon come from the Green Mountain Smokehouse in Windsor, Vt. We get our vegetables from local farms when they are available. And we hand crush whole tomatoes for our pizza sauce. We run the oven at about 700 degrees so the pizza's take about 90 seconds to cook.  Hope to see you here. Pizza Oven Hours:Fri/Sat/Sun/ 12-8pm

Weekend Entertainment:  Friday night is movie night. We have an outdoor projector and screen and show family oriented movies on Friday nights from 6:30-8pm. The pizza oven is fired up, and so is the maple cream me machine, so bring the family down for an outdoor movie.  


Pasture Tennis:  We have invented a great new game called "Pasture Tennis" that we play on our astro-turf field. We use Kadima racquets, foam balls, and a badminton net — AND IT IS SO MUCH FUN!!  Come down and experience the fun on Pasture Tennis.

Great River Outfitters and Path of Life Garden

Path of life: is a crafted landscape open to the public in Windsor, Vermont. Visitors experience the story of the great circle of life while traveling through sculptures of varying sizes and materials. Inspired by a famous garden in Europe, these eighteen works of art symbolize the journey from birth to death and beyond. Since its conception in 1997, the garden has grown on its own path, providing space for recreation, relaxation, contemplation and realization; making it a great destination for families looking for fun things to do around Quechee, Woodstock, and Hanover. The path is also home to some of a 5+ mile trail network, groomed in the winter for dogsledding, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing.

The garden is located in a 14-acre of field of trails, wildflowers and open spaces on the banks of the Connecticut River. It is enjoyed by people of all ages and was recently featured in Vermont Life and Pastoral Magazine.

Great River Trips:
