Green Mountain Falconry School

Master falconer Rob Waite has been practicing falconry for over 30 years. Rob studied and worked as a professional falconer in the United Kingdom before moving to the United States. He managed the first falconry school to open in the U.S., The British School of Falconry at the Equinox, throughout its 18-year history. He now owns and operates the Green Mountain Falconry School, located at beautiful Boorn Brook Farm. Here he offers visitors a very rare opportunity to handle a trained hawk and share his passion for this ancient sport.
