Good meat, plus check out their frozen section where you can get good homemade chicken pot pies, fruit pies and other goodies to keep in the freezer and heat up when you don't feel like cooking! I also like their deviled eggs and it is also a great spot to get a coffee and sit outside with the dog at one of their tables on the sidewalk and people-watch.

The Highland Course is ranked in the top ten in Vermont by Golf Digest. Playing just over 6,765 yards from the back tees, it features a combination of gently rolling and elevated, tree-lined fairways, along with rock walls and bunkers. Next to it is the Lakeland Course, which presents more of a links-style design that incorporates trees, bunkers, and water features, with a long stretch of the Ottauquechee River adjacent to the course.

America’s oldest flour company, founded in 1790 in nearby Norwich. Sample artisan bread, take a baking class, shop in the baker’s store, have a coffee and pig out on pastries! I listed it under entertainment and activities as the classes are really well done and super fun for all levels, but it is also a great shopping destination-- cooks and bakers lose their minds in this place (which is also worker owned and operated, and it shows)...

This is where it all started! Really cool setting in a converted mill with dramatic waterfall and covered bridge. You can see them blowing glass every day, shop in the store, and also have an excellent meal in the restaurant or drink in the bar/cafe.
