Organic/Local Restaurants?

Would love to find a restaurant (or several) while in VT. We have quite a few here that use local, organic produce/meat/dairy and would to find the same there. Any help would be appreciated :)

The Brattleboro Coop has great prepared foods for takeout/picnic. Also Hunger Mountain Coop in Montpelier.

Putney Inn uses a lot of local products. Their breakfasts are great.

There are lots of restaurants in VT that are into local and/or organic food. Let us know what part(s) of the state that you are visiting so we can make recommendations.

In the meantime, here are a couple of links to get you started: http://www.vermontfresh.net/, http://www.vermontlocalvore.org/

A great option is a farm dinner. I went to one last fall in Woodstock: www.cloudlandfarm.com/FarmDinners2.html. It was heavenly!

Oh, and the mother of them all: Hen of the Wood in Waterbury. That place is amazing.

Yellowlilax,

Hen in the Wood is supposed to brilliant and Trueman gives you excellent advice. DO make a reservation and go!

Be certain you price these restaurants in advance, since you have indicated you are budget-conscious. Some are very reasonably-priced, others less-so.
