Wheelock Mountain Farm is deep in the rural, rugged beauty of Vermont's Northeast Kingdom. We're a 20 minute drive from Hardwick, 1 hour from Montpelier, 1 3/4 hours from Burlington, 3 hours from Montreal, 3 1/2 hours from Boston. . .
Located in West Wheelock, we're halfway between Hardwick and Glover, 2 miles off of Route 16. Mapquest and other computer generated directions are a bit convoluted out this way - roads that exist in theory aren't always passable!
If you need to stop and ask for directions as you get closer, ask folks for the way to Greensboro Bend. (If you ask for Wheelock, they'll probably direct you to the other side of the mountain, not knowing that our little corner of the world is actually Wheelock also!)
As you reach the dirt roads close to WMF, please drive gently - the wildlife, your vehicle, and our neighbors will appreciate your care.
Any questions, of course, give us a call at 802-533-2296 and 533-9929.
