About Woodstock, VT
Woodstock is a Currier & Ives print come to life. Well-maintained Federal-style houses surround the tree-lined village green, which is not far from a covered bridge. The town owes much of its pristine appearance to the Rockefeller family's interest in historic preservation and land conservation and to native George Perkins Marsh, a congressman, diplomat, and conservationist who wrote the pioneering book Man and Nature (1864) about humanity's use and abuse of the land. Only busy U.S. 4 detracts from the town's quaintness.

Woodstock is quintessential New England: white picket fences, gardens and a square flanked by Federal, Georgian and Greek Revival mansions.
Though the trees are tapped and the sap is boiled in the spring, you can sample pure maple syrup and smoked cheeses anytime at this family-run farm.
