Fable Farm Fermentory is a farm-based winery producing aged wines and vinegars, among other herbal elixirs. The fermentory is part of a larger family of organizations working together to steward farmland, develop rural businesses, and promote community experiences. They began our journey in 2008 when they initiated their vegetable CSA.

Located in the, piemonte, or foothills, of the Green Mountains in Barnard, VT, they’re situated at 1700 feet, atop the Broad Brook watershed. Their farm is a mosaic of fields, forests, and gardens rich with ecological diversity. They work cooperatively with partner farmers and advocates to steward the historic Clark Farm. Now conserved by the Vermont Land Trust, this 450 acre haven is a living legacy of the european settlers who sculpted small farms out of an old-growth wilderness back in the late 1700’s. The farm is now managed by a network of dairy, livestock, vegetable, and fruit enterprises.

Over the years, they’ve grafted and grown hundreds of cider-specific apple and pear trees in nursery beds peppered around Barnard. And for the next couple of decades, they plan to plant many apple and pear trees, among other tree/shrub crops and herbs throughout the farm.

“Vinous Venus” is a sparkling apple-grape wine. Macerated red grape pomace and fresh red grape clusters are blended with foraged cider. It aged for 2 years in wood barrels. After, a tirage of apple juice (an addition of wine containing unfermented sugars) was added to turn it into a sparkling wine.
