Spring Lake Ranch Farm Stand
Cuttingsville, VT - I saw this sign and stand and I though the mural would make an interesting photo. I did some research and found that Spring Lake Ranch offers alternative treatment for adults with mental illness and/or substance abuse problems. So, any purchase here goes to support the ranch. It is closed now but you can order Maple Syrup by phone or internet ==> Click Here for Link <==
Here is the stand.
A close up of one of the murals.
I think this mural is really cool.

Gloria's Pantry and Bake Shop
Cuttingsville, VT - Not being able to resist a bakery, I stopped at Gloria's Pantry and Bake Shop on my way up to Castleton, VT to pick up a new soapstone sink for "The Grangehouse". Gloria's Pantry doesn't just do fresh made baked items, it's main business is selling Jams, Jellies, Relishes, Honey, and Maple Syrup. Gloria will create a "Vermont Made Gift Box" and ship it anywhere you would like. View her website ==> Gloria's Pantry <== and you will be amazed at how many items she makes.
Here is a quick view of inside the bakeshop. I bought one of her cookie bars and I was not disappointed, if I remember correctly it had chocolate, nuts, maybe caramel. All I know is I wish I bought more!
Here is a photo if the entrance to the shop, which is in back of her house. So on your way up to Okemo Ski area, make sure to stop by Gloria's, you will not be disappointed.

Holy Crap! This is my 5 year Blogaversary
Five years ago today I started this blog. I have been all over New England bringing you sights and history of this area of the country. This will be my 1659th posting and I intend to continue. I have been letting my postings slip in the last few months, but I will get back to posting soon. I have also started a new blog called "The Grange House" which is documenting the process of turning Grange Hall, which was once a church built in 1800 into our new home. The photo above is the same subject that was my first photo on this blog...but no snow this time. So stick with me and I will bring you more sights and history of New England.
