Valcour Farm

The Valcour farm is a productive mix of tillage, pasture and sugarbush. It also contains a well-known heron rookery which is now protected by a 20-acre wetland protection zone. The property's conservation protected one of Lamoille County's remaining working farms. 

Vermont Land Trust worked with the Valcour family to permanently protect the Valcour Farm located at the corner of Randolph and Goeltz Roads in Morristown. The Valcour farm was simultaneously conserved and sold to the Hursh family making Jesse and Marlene Hursh the proud owners of their first farm. They and their grown children have rented a dairy farm, where they run popular farmstand, across the valley on Lyle McKee Road for over 20 years. The Hurshes will continue to milk and grow vegetables for their farm stand at the rented farm for a while and eventually plan to transfer their operation across town to the Valcour Farm property. 

Public Access

In winter, a section of the Catamount Trail crosses the property. No other public access.


From the intersection of Route 100 and 108 in Stowe Village, take Route 100 north 6 miles to Goeltz Road. Turn right onto Goeltz Road. The Valcour Farm surrounds the intersection of Goeltz and Randolph Roads.
