Sisters open Weybridge Gardens

WEYBRIDGE Staff of the Addison County Chamber of Commerce welcomed local business owners Kris Bowdish and Audra Ouellette of Weybridge Gardens, with a grand opening ceremony at their new business in Weybridge. Weybridge Gardens is the work of sisters, Audra and Kris, who grew up in Weybridge on Weybridge Farms. The sisters have branched out on their own and are very excited to jump into vegetable production. They share a love for Vermont, the community, the land and fresh vegetables. They strive to produce only the best veggies and will offer only those they would be happy to serve to their own family. Weybridge Gardens is home to Addison Countys only Corn Maze. The corn maze covers nine acres and takes about two hours to complete. The Corn maze features a viewing bridge, several hole punches to monitor your progress, a gathering spot for those who need a little help or hydration or rest, and a bell to ring in celebration of a wonderful achievement. There is also a small kids maze for the younger or older folks, who may not want to get lost for two hours. Weybridge Gardens has a new farmstand hand built by Audra and Kris and their Uncle Mike, using lumber harvested from their Uncle Mikes land in Brandon. The farm stand was built with recycled windows and doors and salvaged roof rafters. Weybridge Gardens opens at 10 a.m. with last admission at 6 p.m. and will close when visitors have completed the maze at 8 p.m. On Friday and Saturday nights there will be night mazes with last admission at 8 p.m., all visitors must carry a flashlight. Night admission will be subject to weather conditions so please check our website, www.weybridgegardens.com, for up to date information. We will be closed on Tuesdays. Admission is $5 for kids six to sixteen and seniors over 65, $7 for adults, and free for kids five and under. Please call, 802-545-2306, or email, kris@weybridgegardens.com, for group rates. Weybridge Gardens is located at 181 Thompson Hill Rd. in Weybridge and is near downtown Middlebury. Thompson Hill Road is located off of Route 23 (Weybridge Street) and is just south of Route 17.
