Cluckin' A Critter Farm

We recently had the chance to get away from the inn for a moment and visit a local farm - Cluckin' A Critter Farm. This year we wanted to get a Thanksgiving Turkey from a local farm, and Delores, our office assistant, suggested the Cluckin' A Critter Farm, which happens to be just down the road from Delores' home.

According to their website the farm is a "continuing story of two people, four dogs, three barn cats, 1 pet turkey, 30 guinea fowl, 75 ducks, over 225 chickens, 5 German Angora rabbits, 7 alpacas, two sheep and their life long dream to run a little 9 acre farm in upstate New York."

Skip and Vicki sell farm fresh eggs, maple syrup, honey, raw fiber (from sheep, angora rabbits, and alpaca), yarn, free range chickens, chicks, ducklings, Vermont cheese, and in season produce.


It is fun just to visit the farm to see all the animals!





Besides the farm, Skip and Vicki operate Nature's Friend's of Hospice. This is a registered not-for-profit gift shop to benefit the Community Hospice program. As a former nurse, this is a program close to Vicki's heart.


The gift shop features donations of art work, knitted items, and a wonderful selection of gifts of all sorts. Definitely worth a visit and you'll know that your purchases are going towards a good cause!
