We've been busy reconfiguring our systems to get fresh, organic vegetables, fruits, and herbs from our Market Garden to the community. Produce that would regularly be used in our seasonal restaurant is now being sold through our Farm Store for curbside pickup! It's being incorporated into delicious pre-packaged meals by our Inn chef, too. Place your order and choose your pick up time.
Going to Bat for Bats
The Farm's long-term effort to provide for embattled little brown bats (but keep them out of the Inn!) is bearing fruit—and bats! The Inn's bat house now hosts one of the largest maternity colonies of endangered little brown bats in Vermont!
Feeding Kids During the Pandemic
V ermont FEED, our Farm to School project in partnership with NOFA-VT, is speaking with School Food Directors across the state to s hare voices from the frontline nutrition programs that so many families depend on. First up: Karyl Kent of Lamoille North School District.
Garlic Scape Dilly Beans
Garlic scapes are the immature flower stalks of a garlic plant. Since we see them at farmers' markets, most of us know they shouldn't be relegated to the compost pile. But how do we cook with them?
