A fixture of the Brattleboro landscape for 180 years, Retreat Farm encompasses 500 acres of conserved forest, farmlands, trails, waterways, and an historic Farmstead. The Farm sits adjacent to downtown Brattleboro, and serves as a central gateway to Vermont and New England. Retreat Farm offers a performance venue, children's farmyard and forest, summer camps, woodland trails, farm fresh food trucks, special events and event rentals.
Retreat Farm, Ltd., a 501(c)(3) public charity, was formed in 2016 to restore, preserve, and reinvigorate the Farm’s historic lands and buildings. Retreat Farm’s core programs instill a love of the natural world among Vermonters and visitors. We envision the Farm’s lands and historic buildings becoming home to community-advancing activities and enterprises that will complement our programming and strengthen the site as a dynamic community resource.
