Merck Forest and Farmland Center (MFFC) is an educational nonprofit organization with a mission to teach and demonstrate innovative, sustainable management of forest and farmland. MFFC is composed of 3,162 acres and includes a 3,100 acre managed forest, certified-organic sugaring operation and a 62-acre farm. We offer on-site demonstrations, apprenticeships, workshops, and school programs as well as recreational and volunteer opportunities. These offerings allow visitors to connect with MFFC's farm and forest through meaningful experiences with this working landscape.

Visit the farm, venture into the forest or stay overnight in a rustic cabin or lean-to. With over thirty miles of trails for hiking, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, and horseback riding MFFC has a multitude of recreational opportunities. Please stop by the Joy Green Visitor Center to learn more about MFFC's activities and land use. Our certified organic pure Vermont maple syrup and other farm and forest products may be purchased at our Visitor Center or our Online Store.

MFFC is open to the public year round, 7 days a week from dawn to dusk. There is no admission fee. MFFC is community-supported through donations, membership fees, cabin rentals and MFFC product sales. Please consider supporting us today!
