late research

surfing the web tonight, found a couple of interesting local food things in VT.

there is a tea company in waterbury that grow & make their own herbal tea blends (and they also sell other non-local teas) - vermont liberty tea

and i just read about an all local diner in quechee gorge (used to be in barre). has anyone been to this place? - farmer's diner

yum yum....

peace,
greg

I never went to the Farmer's Diner while it was in Barre. However a few other people who I trust in their review of restaurants didn't have a very good experience.

I guess the food was alright, but the front of the house was terrible. Long long waits for service in a nearly empty restaurant kind of thing. The people in question were pretty bummed because they really wanted to like the place but just couldn't get into it because the service was so miserable.

The business owner is a serial entrepreneur though so hopefully he learned something through that experience and is coming back new-and-improved. I'd be game to make a trip down to the new one.

g-lo

i went to the farmer's diner in Barre a couple times because whenever someone would visit, they would want to go there, since it was in the NEW YORK TIMES. i thought it was nothing special, but it's just supposed to be 'diner food', so i guess it lived up to that. i did get to see some pretty awesome tombstones though!

it was okay. i liked the atmosphere. but yeah, just regular ol' diner food. too greasy for me in general. what i really hated about it the most were the tiny disposable containers of smuckers jam. sick.
