Stopped here with my wife and my cousin and his wife to view the Wildflowers. We walked through a field and through a forest and pond to view and identify Wildflowers. After the walk we visited the gift shop to buy seeds for our own wildflower gardens. The staff is very friendly and helpful.

We were in the area so decided to stop by. It was a very hot day and the wildflowers were quite wilted. The gift shop is nice, and we received a free wildflower seed packet with our purchase. There is no water fountain or real bathroom. The porta potty in the parking lot was quite unpleasant. We were out of... More

If you are in the area during mid-late summer, this is a nice spot to visit. It's not far from all the other Charlotte attractions, so this is a good place to start your day. They have wild flowers planted out back of the building and a trail that takes you through the woods, but I wouldn't go out there... More

Interesting store with lots of different wildflower seeds, plus a nice walk through a wildflower garden and into the woods. Worth a stop if you like to garden or want to learn about wildflowers, but not a 'must-see' stop in general.

A wonderful selection of seeds and planting supplies. Some nice odd ball items for the garden as well.

This might be great in the spring, but walking the trail in the summer was no big deal. I can see Black-eyed Susans & Queen Ann's lace in my backyard. It's right on the highway by the Teddy Bear Company & Shelburne Farms, so if you need to stretch your legs, do a quick check. You can see everything from... More

This was one of the best places we stopped on our visit to Vermont. The staff is super friendly and knowledgeable. We found their prices to be very competitive and the garden tour was charming! We bought a whole load of seed while we were there, planted it when we arrived home and are beginning to have blooms! We highly... More

We recently walked around the Vermont Wildflower Farm and thoroughly enjoyed it. The very level, easy-to-follow path goes past fields with wildflowers (signs explain different varieities) and then passes through some woods before re-emerging by a small marsh near the entrance. Along the way, we were mesmerized by tiger swallowtail butterflies flying in the fields and by the croaking of... More

It was late in the season and many flowers were past their prime. Signage could have been better. Store personnel seemed uninterested in having us there.

We visited June 24 and most of the wild flowers had bloomed. It's okay for free, but you'd better plan to visit some wineries nearby to make the trip worthwhile.
