The sharp tang of cheddar cheese and the earthy sweetness of maple syrup are Vermont's signature flavors. But they're just the tip of the iceberg. Dairy farms support cheese production that goes far beyond classic cheddars. Farmers coax an impressive variety and quantity of produce from land that’s buried under snow for many months of the year. Game animals, rabbits, and traditional livestock thrive on small family farms committed to using sustainable, organic methods.Taking advantage of this wonderful food are innovative chefs trained to bring out the best in their ingredients, B&B owners who take pride in their robust country breakfasts, and the farmers themselves who love sharing the recipes that make their products shine.
