From Interstate-89: Take Exit 7 off I-89. At the first light, take a right (you'll see Applebee's Restaurant, Town & Country Honda, and the Comfort Inn). Continue straight about 1/4 mile to first intersection and take a left onto Comstock Road (dirt road). Continue straight on Comstock Road for about one half mile. University of Vermont Extension building is on the left; look for sign that reads, "USDA Service Center." The building is tan with blue trim.
