Kelly Way Gardens
Kelly Way Gardens is a farm-to-table program started from scratch, providing the Woodstock Inn & Resort with an on-site holistic food supply straight from the ground. We specialize in unique and heirloom varieties and provide culinary inspiration to our chefs and beauty to the Resort with over 200 varieties of vegetables, 50 varieties of herbs and edible flowers, 75 varieties of berries and orchard plantings, a mushroom glen and 200 varieties of cut flowers. The 2.5acre garden is tended by master gardener Benjamin Pauly, with produce picked daily and delivered to the culinary team while still warm from the sun.
Our Garden started in 2013 with the focus of growing the Resort’s commitment to the local conservation legacies of Laurance Rockefeller, Frederick Billings and George Perkins Marsh. We hand cultivate our garden and use elements of permaculture and nutrient dense farming to create the healthiest, best tasting and certified organic produce for our restaurants.
Nestled on the hillside of the Kedron Valley, our Garden overlooks the Resort’s Golf Course and conserved Vermont forestland just one mile south of the Inn and village of Woodstock. Our 2.5 acre garden carries on the history of agriculture of the land and embraces the varied topography of Vermont to make a rich and engaging agriculture experience.
To be able to share this experience to our guests is as important as the produce that we harvest. Guests are encouraged to explore Kelly Way Gardens and the many areas of interest it has to offer through our horticulture packages, guided tours, on-site classes such as cut flower arranging, organic gardening and heirloom tomatoes or by just stopping by and leisurely enjoying the vivid sights, tastes and smells of the gardens while chatting with the gardeners in the field.
