Walker Farm's Elysian Hills Tree Farm

223 Knapp Road
Dummerston, VT 05301


About Us:

The Elysian Hills Tree Farm is located in the Town of Dummerston, directly north of Brattleboro, in southeastern Vermont. The historic 1791 cape house is surrounded by 138 acres of conserved land, 100 acres of which are managed woodland including maple sugar lots, wildlife habitat, recreational trails, and timber for harvest. In June, 2014, Walker Farm purchased the Elysian Hills Tree Farm from the Vermont Land Trust. Under the guidance of Bill and Mary Lou Schmidt who will continue to live on the farm, the Manix family hope to carry on the tradition of excellence and land stewardship that has made this property one of the most beautiful spots in southern Vermont with spectacular views to the south and west.

Our goal is to become the first Certified Organic Christmas Tree Farm in Vermont. We hope to further diversify the farm which now grows 20 acres of Christmas trees and 1/4 acre of organic rhubarb with the addition of organic fruits and vegetables and a seasonal retail Country Store that will also offer artistic agricultural crafts. Seasonal events are being planned to allow families to enjoy the scenic property and hiking trails. We will also be fixing up the barn so that it will be available for weddings and other special occasions.
