Its private setting and peaceful atmosphere makes Boorn Brook Farm a great choice for a multitude of unique experiences. Within driving distance of New York City, Hartford, Albany and Boston, Boorn Brook Farm is an ideal venue for your next family retreat, executive conference, corporate meeting, or strategic planning session. Whether you are looking for a daytime event or an overnight retreat, contact our staff to tailor an experience to meet your specific family or business needs. Some of the experiences our guests enjoy are:
Green Mountain Falconry School
Exclusive to Boorn Brook Farm is the Green Mountain Falconry School, the first of only a handful of falconry schools across the country. Book a private falconry lesson and take a hawk walk on the property's 3 miles of groomed, wooded trails, or for a larger group, book a "meet and greet the birds" session. The term "bucket list" is often used to describe these hands on lessons and walks!
Fly fishing lessons
In the summer, take fly fishing lessons in our stocked trout pond, and learn the art of the sport with a local guide. The lessons and group activities are available on and off site, and are coordinated with local experts specializing in the field. After practicing your newly learned techniques in the pond, you can master your new skills in the local brook that borders the property. Feel like you are prepared for a more advanced challenge? You can expand your horizons to the Battenkill to test your skills.
Honey Harvest and bottling
Boorn Brook Farm has its own apiary, where the local harvest in the late spring and fall bring delicious golden nectar for your consumption. If making your own party favors* appeals to you, bottle your own honey gathered from our hives. (*Subject to availability.) Learn about the bees, and enjoy their “liquid gold”with your toast & tea or, for the true lover of honey, by the spoonful.
