We begin our annual Vermont Cheese and Cider Tasting Series on the Weekend of Saturday, September 19th and it continues on Saturday afternoons through October 24th. Nibble, Taste & Dance into the night in our own nightclub, Club SugarShack!
This mini-nakation, or leaf-peeping adventure, be localvores and join us from 4:30PM – 6:30PM either pondside or in the Carriage House, weather dictating. For room guests and campers who are dining with us, this event is complimentary, while those joining us just for this event, the cost is $20 per couple.
The “Farm Fresh” movement is a growing trend and Vermont Cheese & Cider Tasting at Abbott’s Glen continues our participation and promotion in this worthy trend. Join in and have fun.
Our Wine and Cheese tastings will be held either pondside or in the Carriage House Saturdays
In the meantime, and beyond, what can you do to participate in the localvore movement? Here are some ideas:
- Visit your local farmer’s market
- Visit farm and produce stands (notice how this increases social interaction…)
- Evaluate what you buy and make a list of items you will purchase locally
- Preserve locally purchased food for the winter
- Find restaurants that source from local producers
- Host locally sourced holidays such as Thanksgiving and other holidays throughout the entire year.
- Buy from local vendors for all types of products such as soap, clothes (maple syrup…!)
- Ask where your food comes from (this could be surprising)
- Express your interest, desire and support for local produce and products at your grocery store
- Vist a farm and get to know your area farmers (wise souls, they may be)
- When you vacation, or nakation, or visit any resort (such as Abbott’s Glen!), make sure they know you appreciate their efforts to source their food and products locally
- Feel good about what you do, no matter how much or how little, have fun. Every act counts!
This BYOB event is followed by a gourmet harvest dinner and dancing in Club SugarShack. Revel! See you here!

Consider this foreshadowing for Vermont Cider Week, November 14th – 23rd, which you can read about here.
And don’t forget to visit our friends up the road at Honora Winery on Route 112 in Jacksonville (this should help you BYOB for something on the more potent side to go with that cheese…)
