Re: “Hot Lunch: Student-Run Restaurant Wows Diners in St. Johnsbury

They're only open for lunch three weekdays for two hours each day. Wouldn't seem like a big problem. If they're that good, maybe the other joints will up their game.

Do these kids get paid for working... and if not does this not seem to be unfair competition to the for profit restaurants in the area?

Re: “Seven Vermont Destinations for Eating on the Farm

Cool stuff!
If you want to have a hands on experience on an organic farm, hydroponic greenhouse, backyard garden and a visit with some horses, readers can check out the Vermont Food & Farm Tours in Waitsfield. https://www.vtfoodtours.com/

Re: “Sven Olson to Reopen Scale House in Hardwick

thanks Katie for alerting us to that error. The online headline is different from the one in print. This is fixed now. Melissa

Re: “Sven Olson to Reopen Scale House in Hardwick

The name of the restaurant is "The Scale House," not "Scale Restaurant" as the headline indicates.

Re: “Sven Olson to Reopen Scale House in Hardwick

Hopefully there'll be no confusion with The Scale at Taft Corners in Williston. I'm thinking in terms in web searches, mainly.

Re: “Sampling the Ready-to-Eat Options at the Burlington Farmers Market

Aside from Green Mountain's Wing Chun potstickers, did any of the Ready-To-Eat vendors offer vegan options? That would be of interest to plant-based eaters. Thank you!

Re: “Sampling the Ready-to-Eat Options at the Burlington Farmers Market

loved the article! Got me all intrigued and anticipating my return to the 802 later this summer to indulge in the whole scintillating experience!

Re: “Sampling the Ready-to-Eat Options at the Burlington Farmers Market

My concern for the Burlington Farmers Market is when the weather gets hot this location has no trees or grass it is a big dusty parking lot

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!
