Good family time!

Shortcake supper

It's tradition for communities to offer annual "strawberry shortcake" suppers around here... and we thought we should try it out.

Everything Is Ready!

Tropical Storm Andrea is on the east coast right now... but we are hoping to have it all cleared up for the "world famous" STROLLING OF THE HEIFERS at 10 AM tomorrow! 

We are excited to have people visiting Franklin Farm for tours (including milking!)--and coming to the Robb Family Farm tomorrow night!

Homemade Ice Cream? Maple Syrup? Local Beef?

Farm Fest Details

Sugar-On-Snow Supper

Posted in Brattleboro, nature, events, seasons, food

One of my favorites...

Sugar-On-Snow Supper

We are participating in one of my favorite Vermont activities tonight: a sugar-on-snow supper hosted in a local church basement.

This event was first introduced to me by my dyed-in-the-wool-Vermonter husband back when we met.  It is a tradition to not explain too much about the “sugar on snow” dessert to "flat landers" (like me).
