Re: “Health Hero Farm Promotes Awareness of Humane Certification

hi Connie - thanks for reading! The herd size of 50 and the acreage of 150 are mentioned in the story - as is the fact they grow their own hay for baleage, which is the winter feed. I do not mention the topography of the farm, however, although I do believe it is mostly flat as you note. I suggest following up with Bob and Joan for more details if you are interested in other specifics of their practices. The Vermont Grass Farmers is also a great resource : find them at www.vtgrassfarmers.org ~ thanks again, Melissa Pasanen

Re: “Health Hero Farm Promotes Awareness of Humane Certification

You do not state the acreage, nor the herd size. What might be the optimal sizes?
South Hero is mostly flatt-ish land... Could this work on more hilly farms?
Do they grow their own winter-feed?

Re: “Sampling the Chef-Made Foods to Go at Gilfeather's

I'm seconding the reaction to the writer's distaste for "townies." You aren't doing the Bensons any favors with your classism.

Re: “Sampling the Chef-Made Foods to Go at Gilfeather's

Great article to honor a true Ferrisburgh jewel ! Rick and Nan'store is dream come through. I will not add to the extensive food description as IT IS ALL TRUE ! As a Ferrisburgh resident I have seen the store evolve since its inception and becoming a delight for culinary senses . The store is a testimony to the love and knowledge of food of their owners and to the rich and varied palette of gastronomical delights Made in Vermont !

Re: “Sampling the Chef-Made Foods to Go at Gilfeather's

A little shocked that the author finds townies to be a detraction for an establishment.

Can we expect a half-page ad from this place in the next issue? (wink)

Re: “Young Gateway Farm Owners Build a Diversified Operation

What a smart, innovative and industrious couple. Thank you Seven Days for publicizing this wonderful story of a beautiful, modern family farm. I wish I could shake that loan officer's hand!

Re: “Winooski Restaurateur Brings Back Italian Classics at Jrs Original

Please don't call that old style italian..maybe American Italian. Saying that chicken marsala, eggplant Parmesan, baked rigatoni and shrimp scampi are old Italian dish is just a insult to my culture

Re: “Talking Chocolate Vulvas With Martina Anderson of Nutty Steph's

And if a male initiated even a conversation about candy female body, much less openly publicized it, he'd be crucified, right?---Is this like an African-American using the 'N' word?

Re: “Kizy Puts Café Spin on Kismet's Locavore Cuisine

This article rules. Someone should be using "raw nut-and-date-based gooey energy ball, but hot and dressed up for winter" in their 7DVT dating profile STAT.

Re: “Dinner Via Mr. Delivery in Burlington

I hope additional restaurants sign up. I am not a pizza girl.

Re: “Dinner Via Mr. Delivery in Burlington

One of the best things about Mr. Delivery is that the Burlington franchise is locally owned by a UVM (14) grad! Hes also super handsome :) Happy Valentines Day Asher!

Re: “Why a State Obsessed With 'Local' Doesn't Eat Vermont Fish

The State is so screwed up it stinks. Human activity pollutes the lake far more than agricultural run off. The only reason they are hitting farmers is because they don't have the money to fight them. My family has eaten fish from the lake for over 50 years. They would do better at cleaning it up if Burlington would stop dumping raw sewage in it.

Re: “Longtime Organic Ag Leader Enid Wonnacott Steps Down

I wish you well and thank you for your years of hard work in Vermont. We need more strong, intelligent women in companies and organizations such as NOFA-VT. My granddaughter is a UVM-ag.graduate and an organic meat, pork and poultry farmer, as well as veggies. She is the Pres. the agricultural association for Addison Co. And was Pres. Of VT FFA when in hs. Maybe shell one day cross paths with Mrs.Wonnacott, if not already. Good job!
