Taste of Vermont

            Hi everyone!

            We’re excited to say that we’ll be attending the 11th annual Taste of Vermont—a celebration of all things Vermont that takes place in the Kennedy Caucus Room on Capitol Hill, (Washington, DC). This is going to be our 5th year attending the event, and every year it’s more fun. VT has an incredible culture (and reputation), and it’s awesome to see so many small businesses making unique, delicious things.

            Senator Leahy has hosted the Taste of Vermont since it began in 2005. Each year, more and more people attend the event: both to sample/see the variety of VT drinks and foods, as well as to showcase their products. It actually has sold out completely every year that we’ve attended. Needless to say, we’re pretty excited!!

            What are we bringing this year? Chermoulah Chicken salad (Misty Knolls chicken, our new Chermoulah), with watercress (from Green Mountain Harvest), wrapped in bib lettuce (grown by us).

Who Knew? "Souping" is the New Thing!

Finally, a diet we can get behind

Apparently, people are now eating only soup for a day--a "soup cleanse", because it's "an excellent way to hit the reset button on your body, especially after a period of overeating or imbibing. You can recalibrate your digestion and get back on track, without sacrificing food."

We stumbled across this article on PopSugar today, and thought it was pretty interesting. Not that we would probably participate in a "soup cleanse", but it's cool to find out we were a little bit ahead of the curve on this health trend! Apparently, it's a great way to lose weight because you're "decreas[ing] calories while maintaining (if not increasing) satiety (full feeling)." 

Who knew?! We're thinking it's just another reason to eat soup year round. ;)

As always, stay in touch!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Matchmaker Event

Hi All! 

            If you’re going to be in the Burlington area this Friday, April 29th (tomorrow), stop by the Hilton and check out our table at the VT Fresh Network’s annual matchmaker event! We’ll be there from 1-5 in the afternoon, serving up samples of ALL of our products.

            We’ll have three different hot soups for everyone to taste: our Chicken Ginger, Split Pea & Ham, and Broccoli Cheddar. We’re also bringing all of our sauces! We’ll have our Maple Chipotle BBQ sauce, Chimichurri, Chermoulah (our newest product!), Hummus (made with organic chickpeas and olive oil—another new product!), and our classic Basil Pesto. We’ll also have retail/bulk packages of our products out, so you can see what our packaging looks like—beans, bone broths, soups, and sauces.

            We’re excited to be able to reach out to more people in the area, and share our products! It should be a fun event—we look forward to seeing you there! 

As always, stay in touch!!

Made in Vermont Marketplace

Hi Everyone!

We're excited to announce that we'll be up in Essex this weekend, participating in the Made in Vermont Marketplace. The market is opening tomorrow morning at 9 tomorrow morning (it's open until 6), and it'll be open Sunday from 10 am--4 pm. The whole marketplace is indoors (though it's looking like the weather this weekend wouldn't have been prohibitive--summer's almost here!!), in the Blue Pavillion building at the Champlain Valley Expo. 

(Our Soffrito--one of the sauces we're bringing to the Marketplace!)

What exactly IS the Made in Vermont Marketplace? It's a celebration of all things made in our wonderful state! Last year there were over 4,300 attendees, and this year there are going to be over 60 different vendors, offering samples and retail containers of products. In addition to a wide array of different meats, veggies, and value-added products, different participants at the Marketplace will be giving demonstrations. 

(action shot of our Chimichurri being made)

We're planning to bring LOTS of different products--our Maple Chipotle BBQ sauce, Maple Vinaigrette, Soffrito (spicy tomato sauce), Beans (one of our newer products--so yummy), Chimichurri sauce, Pesto, bone broths, and--of course--SOUP!

We hope to see you there!! It's going to be an exciting weekend, full of delicious and interesting things. 

As always, stay in touch! We're here to answer any questions or inquiries you may have.

Thanks!

Things to look out for in March!

Hi Everyone!

            We’re headed down to Boston today! It’s the annual Local Foods Tradeshow (hosted by the sustainable business network). We’ll be in the Curry building at North Eastern University from 8:30 to 2:00 in the afternoon. We’ll be meeting with potential customers, and get the chance to check out tons of other small businesses—and see what they’re up to.

 

Later on in the week—this Thursday, March 10—we are attending the first annual ACORN (Addison County Relocalization Network) meeting in Middlebury. The network is a  group of producers, consumers, and other members of the community that are trying to address the (growing) problems of climate change, and with that sustainability and responsibility for the community and the Earth. It’s a really great organization, and it will be really interesting to learn more about how we can get involved with them!

            We’re also very excited to announce a new partnership with Just Add Cooking—a company based in Boston that helps with meal preparation—it works sort of like a highly personalized CSA. Last Wednesday we sent out our first shipment of pinto beans down to them, and we look forward to expanding with them. It’s great to be able to get into the Boston market through yet another venue. 

            We’ll be in touch soon! And, as always, stay in touch with us!  

            Have a great week!
