CrocusThe time is flying by and even though there is still a bit of snow, the crocus are peeking out the back and there is mud.  A sure sign of spring and summer and the busy season.  The “slow season” is the time for rejuvenation, new ideas and new energies.  People are thinking about traveling again and we are busy  taking .reservations for this summer.  And so looking forward to it.

I was so psyched to see that Peter Greenberg wrote about farmstays and agritourism this week!! I remember meeting him at the VT Travel conference years ago, when he talked about Vermont as the perfect travel destination to Experience Life, and here I am “doing it”!! Next week I am going to the VT travel conference with a spring in my step because our new Commissioner of Tourism, Megan Smith loves agritourism and understands the value of agriculture and its draw for people.

I have met her and she wants to come visit the farm, and I hope that when I see her we nail down a date for her farm visit.  And for yours too.   I am starting to think about rhubarb and all of those springs things we get to eat.

Stay tuned for some spring recipes.

Delectable Mountains

Delectable Mountains

Bob has been harvesting the hay up on the hill this week.  I love this time of year when everything changes, the weather, the food!! Tom is harvesting winter squash from his garden, Bob’s brother is busy picking apples, Lesley brought me tomatoes, Tony has pumpkins, Lois is making pickles!! I just add VT maple syrup, Cabot Cheddar cheese, a little King Arthur flour and some love and it all turns delectable!! Just like the mountains!! The rule in Vermont is: “Apple pie without cheddar cheese is like a Hug without the squeeze!! ” Go pick some apples, get your Cheddar and enjoy the gorgeous day out there!!
