I am that crazy neighbor who will place freshly canned applesauce on your doorstep at 6 am. I cannot stop cooking. I grew up running through the corn fields on Gillette Road in Barre and climbing maple trees in my Grandma Jane’s big backyard. We left the country life when I was twelve to live on Main Street in Albion. This blog is a rediscovery of my extended farming family throughout the county, the land, and above all, the food that keeps us all together. Join me as I investigate all that Orleans County has to offer. Let’s explore it all, from the quaint roadside stands where you drop your quarters in the box for fresh sweet corn, to the well-established farm markets where you pick up homemade jams, my favorite sweet heat pickles and beautiful produce.
