we are a family of four looking to move to northern vermont from the brattleboro area. i am not familiar with the north country at all and would like some suggestions to fit our situation. we are down to earth people, environmentally conscious, with two young children, and have some specific desires:
*to live rurally but within no more than 15 minutes from a town that would have all the necessities...and a co- op is important as well as a farmer's market.
*my husband needs to find a warehouse/old mill, 5,000 sq. ft. of space to run his business that he could commute to from our home...but again no more than a 20-25 minute commute.
*a community that is kid friendly and with good schools
if anyone has any suggestions for me i would greatly appreciate it as we are starting from scratch with our research in the area.
thank you so much.

Burlington has the co-op, the farmer's market and the area in which you'll find the 5000 sq ft warehouse. In fact, I know somebody who (word has it) is about to leave a work space on Pine Street which might just work. Pine Street is full of artisans, artists, light manufacturing, workshops, studios, etc etc etc.
There are still a few areas within half an hour which might just seem rural enough to you...feel free to email/message me...

If you decide you'd prefer a smaller town than Burlington, definetly check out Middlebury. Great co-op, farmers market, good schools etc. 45 minutes to the greater Burlington area, 30 to Rutland.

Just out of curiousity, why are you planning to leave Brattleboro? I am considering a move to either Brattleboro or Keene and would love to hear your insights on Brattleboro as a place to raise children, including quality of schools. Thanks so much!
