Welcome to the Jay Peak Region at the Top of VT


If it is covered bridges, spotted cows and farmers’ markets you seek…look elsewhere. This is the Top of VT.

It’s not that you won’t find such things up here. It’s just that they’re so…tame. The Top of VT is a bit unruly. An area of the Green Mountains that resists being defined by postcard images. Where people  find a place where the clamor and confusion of everyday life is replaced by preciousness stillness and views of boundless expanse; where they discover a community shaped as much by weather and wilderness, as the quirky culture that comes with living and working along an International border.

So yeah, we’ve got bridges. They just moan with a bit more history. And the spots on our cows are more lopsided than most. And as to our Farmers’ Markets, well, you have to see them to believe them.

This is such a great time of year for Weddings in Vermont. Beautiful Covered Bridges, farm fields with Cows to gaze at, all while taking in the Fall Foilage like no where else and don’t forget the local farmers markets.

Come on in and see what’s waiting for you in the Jay Peak Region at the Top of VT.

The Jay Community Land Trust consists of two parcels of land with a total area of about 300 acres. The largest of the two is located on Cross Road between routes 242 and 105 and is about 250 acres and is known as the Jay Community Recreational Centre. It is home to a former Christmas tree farm and has some wonderful views of the surrounding mountains.

The 2nd  parcel is located on route 242 on the mountain and is about 50 acres.

The town acquired this property from the Vermont Land Trust so this land may be preserved as undeveloped space for future generations. There are some restrictions that came with the land that must be observed by the town as the property is developed for community use. These include a ban on motorized vehicles and only one building may be constructed on the property.

In the fall of 2007, the town held a  Focus Group  meeting from which the Land Trust committee was formed to oversee the development of the land for public and community use. The Land Trust Committee is under the auspices of the Jay Select Board. Work done on the property during the year is paid for with fundraisers by the Jay Focus Group and the Land Trust Committee as well as volunteers. The Bottle Hut at the Jay Town Hall benefits the development and maintenance of the Centre.
