With its cows and red barns, village greens and white-steepled churches, Vermont is all about classic scenes that tug at American heart strings. It is named for the state's hilly spine, the Green Mountains, or “verts monts”, seen by French explorers 400 years ago. One was Champlain, who gave his name to the long, narrow lake – the state's “western border” that stretches for 120 miles.
Today, Vermont caters to all tastes: rustic and sophisticated, active-minded and do-nothing. It has more craft breweries and artisan cheese makers per head than any other state. And, it is at the leading edge of the “farm-to-fork” revolution. Through the Vermont Fresh Network, farmers, restaurants and inns work together to promote local produce: apples, blueberries, veg and, of course, maple syrup.
