Greensboro is a preeminently rural community in Orleans County, one of three that make up Vermont's fabled Northeast Kingdom. The village has several dairy farms as well as fields and forests conserved by The Nature Conservancy, the Vermont Land Trust and the Greensboro Land Trust. Greensboro has a richly stocked general store (Willeys), and a country club with tennis and golf that nonmembers can access for daily fees (mvcc). A gourmet restaurant is available nearby (Claire's). The village and hinterland offer picturesque drives over back-country roads beside rivers, lakes and hills.
