Welcome to 2007

Happy New Year!

We are back in action after a nice, but all-too-short holiday break in routine.

News here in Vermont is the Legistature's return to Montpelier tomorrow. I read in today's paper that two independent lawmakers will be among the ranks. The newest is an organic potato farmer from nearby Shoreham. (Democrats hold the majority in both the House and Senate.)

Vermont's is a true citizen legislature, with farmers, lawyers, shopkeepers, real estate agents and others all sitting beside one another, approaching challenges and making laws together. I'm interested to see what ideas they generate for encouraging new and growing businesses in Vermont.

Happy new year to you, too! I'm also a native Vermonter (currently misplaced in Maryland), and your business is my biggest inspiration. I hope to be able to visit your production department this coming summer. All the best to you in the coming year, Crystal

"Organic potato farmer" ??

Gee, are there silicon-based potatoes out there that I don't know about? I thought potatoes were carbon-based.

Oh well, I guess you learn something new every day.

Thank you, Crystal. I hope you'll visit in the summer so we can show you how we make ties.

And to anonymous, with all the genetic engineering going on these days, silicon-based potatoes may not be far off!
