The Robert Frost Farm is a National Historic Landmark in Ripton, Vermont, where American poet Robert Frost lived and wrote in the summer and fall months from 1939 until his death in 1963.[3] The property, historically called the Homer Noble Farm, includes a nineteenth-century farmhouse and a rustic wooden writing cabin (where Frost often stayed).[4]

Owned by Middlebury College, the Farm is close to Middlebury's Bread Loaf Campus, home of the Bread Loaf School of English and the Bread Loaf Writers Conference.
