Experience Vermont from three unique, yet closely entwined, destinations. First, tour Green Mountain Girls Farm where you can meet the animals, see the gardens and experience relational farming at its best. Cap off your visit with a piping hot, goat milk latte! Next, head to Fat Toad Farm and get to know the 54 goats that produce the milk, which is crafted into the oh-so-delicious caramel sauces the farm is known for. Get a glimpse of all aspects of the caramel production including a stop at the caramel tasting room and farm store where you will enjoy a special caramel treat made especially for you. Finish your Green Mountain day around a table at Ariel’s Restaurant where a steadfast commitment to using Vermont’s best ingredients creates fine and imaginative food in an unmatched atmosphere.

Insider's Tip:
Order a picnic lunch from Green Mountain Girls Farm. Ask for directions to the floating bridge and enjoy your farm-fresh meal in a very serene and special place.

Insider's Tip:
Visit Ariel’s during the day (call first) to witness a firing of the wood-burning outdoor oven where each evenings’ bread will be prepared for that evening. You may want to schedule your visit to coincide with one of Chef Lee’s always sold out cooking classes.
