Barre,VT – National Geographic Traveler Magazine selected “Dig Into Vermont’s Edible Landscape” “as one of its ‘50 Tours of a Lifetime”, according to Carrie McDougall, owner of Cultural Crossroads, a Vermont-based tour company.
“Dig Into Vermont’s Edible Landscape” is a locavore’s delight. Tour participants will see Vermont’s entrepreneurial farmers create edible feasts from the crops they grow. The tour will visit well-known Vermont producers, Lake Champlain Chocolates, Ben and Jerry’s and High Mowing Seeds. Participants will partake in the farm-to-table meal at the model of sustainable agriculture, historic Shelburne Farms. The tour also features the local agricultural heritage of Vermont communities through visits to farmers markets and other outlets within the state that produce local food, such as the Intervale in Burlington and Pete’s Greens, a four season organic vegetable farm, as well as farms not open to the public. Travelers will also visit local wineries, a spirit distillery and brewery and also learn about cheese and maple syrup making.
National Geographic Traveler editor, Norie Quintos, stressed the “50 Tours of a Lifetime” process selection is highly competitive. Our editorial team worked long and hard to find 2014’s most authentic, most innovative, most immersive, best-guided, and most sustainable tours. The tours we selected go beyond destination to add meaning and context. They open the mind to new possibilities, new connections, new ways of thinking…”
