In central-eastern Vermont, a farm is nestled near a creek and surrounded by green pastures and colorful forests. The winding packed dirt road approaching the barn hugs the trees which in autumn showcase everything the spectacular New England pallet promises. Something about the scene is idyllic, pastoral, panoramic, peaceful, haunting. Since the mid-1950s, photographers from around the world have uncovered their own view of the farm.
Jenne Farm, a working farm not far off Vermont State Route 106 near Reading, VT has been captured on magazine covers, advertisements, films, calendars, posters, and many a photo album. It has earned the distinction of the most photographed farm in New England, and some argue North America or the world.
For me, it was friendly and almost peaceful. The almost comes from the piles of crunch leaves on the ground which Mirielle and I could not resist running through.
How to get there: Drive about 8 miles south of Woodstock, VT on route 106. Look to the right hand side for a road marked “Jenne Road” and/or a sign for Maple Syrup for Sale.
