Plainfield Reviews

Plainfield is a very small town in Vermont and some of the changes I would like to see is repainting some of the houses fixing the roads, and remodeling the play ground. There are only a few store, but farmers markets are well known. Plainfield is known for its delicious organic pizza and organic food in general.

It is a great area if you don't mind being far away from things. Most shopping/groceries are within 20 minutes. Roads can be very rough. This is almost undrivable. Winter tires seems to be a must.
