Winery

About Us
White Silo Farm is a small specialty winery. Our wine is produced and bottled on premises from farm grown fruit.

Experience the charm of an earlier era by touring the old barn where the winery is located. Visit the fermentation, bottling, and corking rooms where the classical art of wine making has been preserved. Walk the fields or relax in one of our outdoor gardens.
Guests are welcome to bring lunches. If you prefer, we also make gourmet box lunches and cheese plates. Advance notice is required for box lunches

Twenty-six years ago our family purchased a portion the spectacular Upland Pastures dairy farm. Our intention was to continue the farming tradition and preserve the land for generations to come. We planted our first crop of raspberries, then blackberries and rhubarb. For the next fifteen years we operated as a pick your own berry farm. In 1990 we opened our winery. The 1800?s dairy barn was renovated and converted to our wine tasting room and production area. In 2010 we planted our first acre of grape vines. We expect to harvest our first small crop of grapes in the fall of 2012.

Many of the winery’s visitors describe our farm and winery as a magical place. We think it is too!
