Dutton Berry Farm has three locations in Southern Vermont. They sell a wide variety of wonderful fresh fruits, vegetables, homemade fudge and jams. Some even have a full bakery with homemade soups. Last year we even get our Inns Christmas Tree there.
Of course, Dutton Berry Farm still has plenty of berry’s – which of course are where it all started. The owner Paul grew up in Southern Vermont on a Dairy Farm. He pursued his education in Agriculture and gained hands-on training in Michigan while working on some berry farms. In the early 1980′s he moved back to Vermont, married his wife Wendy, and they opened their first farm stand. In the mid to late 1980′s they purchased their first “Duttton Berry Farm” and stand in Newfane, VT (still open today). By the early 1990′s they purchased their second location an orchard in West Brattleboro and then yet another farm stand in Manchester, VT. Just this past year they built a brand (and quite beautiful if I may say) new farm stand at their West Brattleboro location.
Don’t want someone else selecting your berries for you? Picking your own fruit is a great way to spend a summer day here in Vermont. Dutton Berry Farm offers Strawberry and Raspberry picking seasonally from 7am – 7pm. Strawberry season runs from about June 15 – July 15 and Raspberry season runs from mid July through early September. Berry picking is one of my personal favorite summer time activities. I love using the fresh picked berries in our scrumptious breakfasts like my Strawberry Cheesecake Stuffed French Toast.
Dutton Berry Farm stands are located on Route 30 in Newfane, Route 9 in West Brattleboro, and in Manchester, VT. Hours vary seasonally. Dutton Berry Farm products can also be found at the Brattleboro Farmer’s Market every Wednesday and Saturday from May – October.
