Dear Steve,

MOO-ing in the rain.
Cow Parade
Spring is finally here.  We visited the new baby Swiss Brown cows at the Shelburne Farm (and they are adorable!)  We've dug out from the Vermont snow on April 26th, May 3rd, etc. 
This month also kicks off the arrival of the Cow Parade.  These life sized 125lb Fiberglass cows are blank canvas for artists to be inspiring.  This year, the cow parade has come to Burlington & Shelburne.  Our local artists have outdone themselves. 
     Should you feel inspired, we have a miniature version that you can paint yourself, or miniature replicas of past Cow Parade favorites.
Please let us know what you think, and if you have ideas for how we can improve our newsletter, speak up!
Introducing Thymes Moonflower. 
One of our most popular brands, Thymes, has introduced a new scent called "Moonflower".  Within weeks of stocking it on our shelves, it has become our number one fragance.

 Desribed as a "Fresh Spice" it is a romantic scent that has a sultry, exotic side.  Not a floral scent at all, it includes hints of Clove, Cognac, and Mahogany.  It is available as a lotion, a soap, bath salt, and of course a spray perfume.
Stop by and sample the scent.  We are sure this will become one of your favorites too!
     For those of you fortunate enough to live nearby or even more fortunate to be visiting, please stop in and see us.  We are open 7 days a week 9:00am until 6:00pm.

Birnn Truffles
May Fudge Flavor
Birnn Truffles
    Vermont is known for many things tasty.  Maple is probably #1 but Chocolate is high on the list.  We are very excited to add a local Chocolatier to our list of Vermont Products.
     Let's face it.  To make a really good truffle requires really fresh cream.  Birnn Truffles are made with fresh Vermont cream from local farms.

     We are proud to now offer Birnn Truffles at the Shelburne Country Store.
