Gay Travel - Restaurants & Bars
Gay travelers to
Vermont will be treated to a plethora of fantastic Vermont
Restaurants. Many Vermont restaurants feature farm fresh
products including local cheeses, Vermont maple syrup, farm
raised meats & poultry, local seafood and more!
Visitors to gay
Vermont may want to partake of some wonderful food at one of Vermont
Farmer's Dinners. The farmers' dinners bring people
closer to the wonderful food sources available in Vermont. The
dinners confirm Wendell Berry's dictum that eating is an
agricultural act. Those attending the dinners benefit first from
a delicious meal made from local foods and from meeting the
farmers and growers. The support of the diners allows farmers,
growers and chefs to offer the best and freshest food available,
in some cases with the food arriving at the table hours after
harvest. These partnerships help to create a future in Vermont
that includes a viable and diversified farm economy.
