Welcome. Archeologists believe people have lived on the land now known as Vermont 10,000 to 12,000 years. Current Vermonters descended from the first believe their connections to this land run much deeper and longer than that. My ancestors came to central Vermont generations back, from England, Ireland, Italy, and who knows. People from most places on earth come to learn, work, teach, visit or stay in Vermont. In many ways, I saw, experienced, the world living in Vermont. It’s amazing, the power of connections.

Vermont’s State Motto is Freedom and Unity. My home’s human culture evolved, became a state, and I hope will always be, a place of Freedom and Unity. This is the Vermont way I knew as a child, value, and want to recapture. Stories from close to home begin our adventures to create slices of cyber space in our Vermont way. Please, come on along; add your slice!

"Whatever you can do or think you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it."

Coming Soon: Vermont Cuisine History & Cookbook Project

Simply put, the project is the telling of Vermont’s story through its food and agricultural history. It will share the singularity and fun of being a Vermonter, our heritages, will support Vermont farm ways, farm moments, agricultural roots and ways that continue to evolve through our agricultural and food practices, and include food for the soul, the artistry in and about food. To learn more or submit stories of Vermont food, recipes, cookbooks, food decor: or Slice of Vermont, Box 183 Calais, VT 05648.
