Windekind Farm is located at the end of a winding town road. Passing through a tall spruce forest, you emerge into a spectacular secluded valley surrounded by the lofty Green Mountains. The road turns east and there, nestled against the hills, is the historic farmhouse, outbuildings and the cottages. Behind the buildings, tall spruce trees embrace the buildings creating a sheltering curtain between the farm and the mountain’s wilderness.
Brooks, ponds, lawns, terraced hillsides, spruce forest, and giant rock outcroppings are Windekind's landscape of diversity. Some of Windekind's gardens are formal; for example our classical perennial gardens while others are workhorses that produce vegetables and flowers. While still others mix wild and domestic species amongst the large rocks, brooks, and walls where the gardens and forest meet.
Windekind is a delight for nature lovers and people who enjoy peaceful places.
Windekind, where human creativity meets and joins nature, careful hands have shaped three ponds and nine gardens forging a cohesive mosaic in a three-acre lawn. The sinuous curves of stonewalls create boundaries and spaces to explore while serene pathways into the adjacent forest invite journeys around the farm and deep into the wilderness.
