Re: “Dining on a Dime: Folino's Pizza in Shelburne

Glad to see Folino's getting some love. Food is always good, and makes for a nice pit stop before or after exploring the museum.

Re: “Land O'Lakes Buys Vermont Creamery: 10 Questions for Allison Hooper

Land O Lakes will make crap product here just like the make elsewhere. For Hooper and Reese to try and sell this as anything else is just dishonest. This is no longer a Vermont product. What a shame. But, business people are business people, their motivation is not noble or altruistic. It's all about the cash.

If the quality is still there after the sale then by all means support the company. If you feel you cannot for whatever reason support them there are a fair number of other options. I'm partial to Woodcock Farms and Jasper Hill myself. It's called voting with your wallet.

Re: “Land O'Lakes Buys Vermont Creamery: 10 Questions for Allison Hooper

My cousin in St Paul MN worked for LOL at a high level in finance, believe me they are just one more big agribusiness looking to expand any way they can. They see non-GMO as just one more profit center. Too bad one more locally owned Vermont business has chosen to sell out, because, protestations aside, there's no way the business can retain the same values it was founded on, just look at Ben & Jerry's and Unilever.
The CEO's actions as detailed above tell the REAL story.

The real question is why does Vermont Creamery HAVE to expand exponentially anyway? Why could they not have been content to remain a smaller business that could have been sold to the employees? Switchback was also growing rapidly, but chose to do just that despite the fact that it would have been far more lucrative for Bill Cherry to sell his business to Samuel Adams or the like. Instead, Hooper et al have chosen to take the money and run by selling out to the InBev of the butter industry. In future we choose to buy our butter and cheese from authentic Vermont-owned producers. Shame!

Re: “Land O'Lakes Buys Vermont Creamery: 10 Questions for Allison Hooper

How sad that they chose to sell to this company. It must have been a massive payout. Land O'Lakes' CEO Chris Policinski testified before Congress in support of the anti right to know, pro-Monsanto, DARK Act, that blocked Vermont's GMO labeling law. His company also spent around $100,000 in defeating GMO labeling efforts in Washington state. Land O'Lakes is heavily into the GMO business, and also developed GMO alfalfa, which is now threatening organic and non-GMO farms:

Re: “Pizzeria Verità to Buy Trattoria Delia and Sotto Enoteca

Congratulations John and Leslie on your upcoming purchase of Tratt. Living in Vermont's NEK, we don't get to Burlington often, but I still remember the romantic evenings Sally and I spent at the Tratt.

Amazing the good things a ton of money can buy these days.
I remember the good old days when a glass of beer was a quarter.

I've heard they're putting an end to live music. That would be a shame. Always enjoyed listening to local bands while enjoying a burger and beer while watching the sunset.

Rustic Roots does a very nice job with shirred eggs, among other things. Good food.
