High Goose Farm sits at 1900’ elevation in Goose City — a hilly enclave of East Dover, Vermont, where the air is clean and springs flow from every hillside. Patches of wild blueberry, winterberry, blackberry and thimbleberry feed the deer, bear, moose, grouse and turkey. On our south-facing slope, we grow blackcurrants, gooseberries, elderberries and blueberries organically. Abraham and Leo (the farm poodles) patrol the fields to keep our cultivated berries safe and the farmers company!
Mary Ellen and Ed Henry planted the first berry fields in 2014 in order to bring the wonders of blackcurrant to the local market. Mary Ellen has had a lifelong passion for growing delicious and beautiful things ever since she grew snapdragons from seed when she was nine.
All of our products use local ingredients whenever possible and the ingredient list is short in order to focus on the flavorful berries. Our syrups and jams are sweetened exclusively with Vermont maple syrup and our salad dressing uses avocado oil to allow the berry flavor to take center stage.
