ABOUT THE 251 CLUB

OF VERMONT

I propose to organize a 251 Club to be

made up of Vermonters and others who

can show that they have visited, not

merely driven through, the 251 towns in

the state.

—Dr. Arthur Wallace Peach (1886-1956)

The 251 Club was first suggested by Dr.

Arthur W. Peach in the Summer 1954 issue

of Vermont Life Magazine.

A poet, professor, writer, and historian,

effusive about all things Vermont, Dr. Peach

was welcomed to the magazine’s advisory

board in its third issue (1947).

His popular literary column, “At the Sign

of the Quill,” was introduced as a regular

magazine feature in the 1949-1950 winter

issue with the promise to “discuss themes

ranging widely from authors and books to

cabbages and kings.”

It was here that Dr. Peach was inspired

to propose an informal group to be known

as the 251 Club in response to countless

reader inquiries, “How can I come to know

the real Vermont?”

He invited “the native born and those

born elsewhere but with Vermont in them”

to veer from the beaten path “to discover

the secret and lovely places that main roads

do not reveal.” He was committed to the

idea that every corner of his home state had

attractions, beauty, history, traditions and

people of interest.

Given the wide circulation of Vermont

Life Magazine, the response from within

and outside of Vermont’s borders was

remarkable. A new batch of Vermont maps

had to be printed to meet the growing

demand while letters from prospective club

members rolled in.

Over a half-century later, the quest to

visit Vermont’s 246 “organized” towns and

cities, as well as its five “unorganized” towns

(Averill, Ferdinand, Glastenbury, Lewis, and

Somerset) continues. 251 Club members

adventure through the state following the

words of Dr. Peach

“A swift turn from one of our main roads,

and you are on your way to the rewarding

experience of a lifetime and memories

good until the years are frosty.”

The 251 Club of Vermont

Since 1954, an organization of Vermont enthusiasts whose objective is

to visit the state’s 251 towns and cities.

Seeking an authentic Vermont experience?

You are invited to join over 5,000 members of

the 251 Club in exploring the state while visiting

its 251 towns and cities.

Travel at your own pace, in a season or in a

lifetime, by car, on foot, or whatever conveyance

suits your style. There are no rules, no records

to keep, no requirements. The expectation is

that you will be inventive and adventurous in

following the road less traveled to Vermont’s

little known corners, as well as its more popular

destinations.

For over six decades, thousands of Vermonters

and Vermont enthusiasts from across the country

have taken up the quest, often injecting it with

their personal interest in nature, art, photography,

architecture, history, museums, covered bridges,

farms and farm stands. . . the list goes on.

Great for bicyclists, motorcyclists, antique car

enthusiasts, and even canoeists like David and

Lyn Perrin of Charlotte, Vermont, who spent four

years paddling their canoe in all 251 towns and

cities to complete their quest.

Savor the Local Flavor

One reason people like to go on vacations is to “get away from it all.” You can do

the same thing on your staycation, though, by getting outside your comfort zone and

exploring new tastes and cuisines right in your own city.

LOOK ONLINE

Search the internet and online newspaper listings to find new, exciting

places to eat near your home. There are countless websites and mobile

phone apps that let diners review their favorite — and least favorite —

places for breakfast, lunch and dinner. You can search by food type,

price and location to see which restaurants are rated highest by other

diners in your area.

Take the reviews with a grain of salt, though. Like any online source,

the information can’t always be trusted. Look for trends in the diners’

comments, such as lots of people raving about their excellent service or

the flavor of their rib-eye steaks. A single positive or negative review

can be misleading, but consistent comments from lots of different

people can give you a better idea of what to expect.

BE ADVENTUROUS

Never tried sushi? Wondering what all the buzz is about that new

Mexican restaurant? Want to try something more exotic?

The great thing about eating out as part of your staycation is that it

lets you experience something completely new, just as if you had left

town.

It can be relaxing to eat at a place you’re familiar with, but it’s more

entertaining — and more of an escape — to try new restaurants and exotic

types of food. Even traditional American restaurants can be exciting

if you’ve never eaten there before.

Another plus: If you fall in love with the new cuisine or restaurant,

you can return again and again, even after the staycation has come to an

end.

SEEK OUT FOODIES

For many people, food is about more than a simple meal. Today’s diners

are getting serious about what they eat and turning the act of dining

into a more memorable experience.

If you’re a real food and drink aficionado — or want to become

one — you can take up dining as a serious hobby. There are all sorts of

clubs, books and TV shows devoted to exploring and preparing great

food.

Some cities even offer restaurant tasting tours that let food lovers

experience a wide variety of tastes in one night.

No matter how serious you are about food, it’s always a good idea to

savor the flavor of your own hometown.

Shopping at a Flea Market

Flea markets or swap meets are places where many different sellers gather to sell items, especially

used or handmade items. They tend to be all-weekend affairs, and some may raise money for charity.

Flea markets can be either outdoor or indoor, and bartering is usually acceptable. Here are some tips

for scoring great deals at the flea market.

CARRY CASH

This isn’t the place to whip out your card. Cash is king, and to pull

off your no-disposable-income ruse, carry small bills unless you’re

looking to make a big purchase like home furnishings. Keep your

cash separated so you don’t flash a big wad to the vendor, even if it is

all $1 bills and $5 bills.

THE EARLY BIRD GETS THE DEALS

Hit the flea market when the doors open to make sure you get what

you’re looking for, at the best price. If you arrive late, you may get

a good deal as vendors look to liquidate before packing up, but you

also risk some of the best vendors selling out or their goods being

picked over. For the best selection, get there early.

DECIDE ON THE SPOT

When you can, make a decision quickly and stand by it. Walking

away could mean missing out on a deal or it could mean the price

going up. If the item is large, the seller should be willing to hold it for

you so that you can enjoy the rest of the market. And if the answer is

no, stick with it. If the vendor won’t meet your targeted price, move

on. There are other fish in the sea.

BRING A SHOPPING BUDDY

Have a friend come with you to bounce ideas off of and to provide

a second pair of hands and eyes. A friend can also help you stake

out items and get larger buys home safely. Friends can also help you

haggle for better prices. Work out your strategy before you go.

BRING A PAPER AND PEN

It’s a good idea to bring something to take notes with, such as the

location of certain items, the names and numbers of vendors who

may have something worth looking at offsite, where you parked, and

a list of what you’re looking to buy today. Make your lists, check

them twice, and get the best deals you can.

World’s Best Foliage

After years of watching other states attempt to position themselves as autumn destinations, Vermont

has thrown down the gauntlet and declared itself the home of the World’s Best Foliage.

“No one does foliage better than Vermont,” declared Vermont

Governor Peter Shumlin. “Three-quarters of our state is forested, and

we have the highest percentage of maple trees in the country. With our

flaming reds, blazing oranges and glowing yellows, we have the most

vibrant fall colors in the world.”

In previous years, states as far away as Michigan, Pennsylvania, and

Arizona have claimed their fall season was as pretty as Vermont’s.

“Clearly, we’re the bar,” said Megan Smith, Commissioner for the

Vermont Department of Tourism and Marketing. “Our fall advertising

campaign will articulate the myriad reasons we have the World’s

Best Foliage. Our hope is that people will be inspired to come see it for

themselves.”

Smith added that Vermont’s fall campaign isn’t just about bragging

rights. Visitors spend $460 million during the foliage season, which

represents about a quarter of overall visitor spending each year. Nearly

3.5 million people travel to Vermont in the fall to experience its unique

working landscape of bucolic villages, pastoral meadows, and forested

hillsides.

To help visitors plan their trip during “peak” season, the state’s official

tourism website, www.VermontVacation.com, will offer weekly

foliage reports, Best Bets for driving tours, and a foliage tracker. The

website will rely on information from the state’s Department of Forests,

Parks and Recreation and its commissioner, Michael Snyder. Snyder

is a well-regarded forester, and with over 30 years of professional

experience, has earned the title of Vermont’s official Foliage Forecaster.

“Predicting fall’s color changes is part science and part luck,” admitted

Snyder. “We know the science of color change and the factors that

influence it, but we don’t know exactly how it will unfold in any

given year. The good news is, our foliage is like a day on the slopes—

when it’s good, it’s great. And even when it’s a bit off, it’s still really

good.” Snyder says Vermont’s abundant spring rain and summer sunshine

have created the right conditions for a spectacular fall in 2019.

Vermont Sportsmen Pay For Conservation

How much are Vermont’s wildlife resources worth? Most of us would

agree you can’t put a dollar value on them.

By John Hall

Many of the memories we have of

wildlife experiences are priceless – a

brief glimpse of a big buck before it

disappears into the softwoods, a close

encounter with a bull moose in the

Northeast Kingdom, or coaching a

youngster on their first fishing trip.

Our fish and wildlife are also important to

those of us who live in Vermont because

they contribute greatly to our economy

as was revealed in the U.S. Fish &

Wildlife Service’s most recent “National

Survey of Fishing, Hunting and Wildlife

Associated Recreation.” Conducted

at five-year intervals, these surveys

provide helpful information on fish and

wildlife recreation in the United States

by estimating the amount of recreation

A Great Fall Outing Begins With A

Great Night’s Sleep

and expenditures that can be attributed to

these resources.

The report on the 2016 National Survey

of Fishing, Hunting, and Wildlife-

Associated Recreation reveals that in

2016, more than 103 million Americans

16 years old and older, 41% of the U.S.

population, enjoyed some form of fishing,

hunting or wildlife-associated recreation.

Hunters, anglers and wildlife watchers

are huge contributors to our nation’s

economy with expenditures totaling

$156.9 billion.

That’s significant no matter how you

look at it, and it is sure to make Vermont

business owners take notice and think

about the opportunities associated with

these pursuits.

The MISSION of the Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department is the

conservation of all fish, wildlife and plants and their habitats for

the people of Vermont.

9 Apple Varieties for Perfect Pies

It’s apple season. What better way to showcase the

delicious flavor of apples than in a pie or cake?

Some apples are better made for baking than others. Here are the nine

of the best to consider. Should an apple variety prove a little too soft for

baking, it can always be turned into applesauce instead.

1. Granny Smith: These tart and firm apples are probably among the

most turned-to for pie fillings. Mix with a sweeter apple for a different

balance of flavor.

2. Jonathan: These tart, tangy apples have been favorites for pies for

years.

3. Golden Delicious: Goldens are less firm than other apple varieties, so

they are good for individuals who prefer a sweeter, softer pie.

4. Jonagold: If you like the taste of Golden Delicious apples and Jonathans,

try this hybrid of the two.

5. Honeycrisp: These are sweet and slightly soft apples, but they won’t

break down much during baking. Grab these apples quickly because

they have a limited window of availability.

6. Winesap: The tough skin of these apples enables them to be stored for

a long time. Plus the firm, white flesh holds up well to baking.

7. Braeburn: These apples are known for their spicy-sweet flavor.

8. Rome: These round, attractive apples have a mild flavor, but hold up

well. So for a more intense apple flavor, mix Rome slices with another

variety.

9. Gala: Crisp, sweet Gala apples offer the perfect balance of firmness

for pies. With natural sweetness, a baker can use less sugar than with

other apples.

Apple, Cheese and Sausage Pancake

2 eggs

1 1/2 cups grated Jarlsberg

2 cored, seeded and chopped large apples (2 1/2 cups)

1 cup low-fat milk

1 cup all-purpose flour

1/4 teaspoon EACH cinnamon, cardamom and salt

8 ounces breakfast link sausages (pork, beef or soy-based), cooked and

crumbled, fat drained off on paper towels

1. In a large bowl, mix together eggs, cheese, apples and milk. In a separate

bowl, mix flour with spices. Mix wet with dry ingredients. Add

crumbled sausage. Cover bowl and refrigerate 1 hour or overnight.

2. Preheat oven to 425 F. Oil an oven-proof 9- or 10-inch skillet. Stir

the batter and pour into pan. Bake 20 minutes, or until puffed and

golden.

3. Serve with a salad and mango chutney or with maple syrup, honey

and/or cranberry preserves. Serves 4 to 6. (c) 2010 King Features Synd., Inc.

Vermont Baked Apples

Choose a sweet apple that holds its shape when baked, such as

Rome Beauty or Cortland. If you like, serve with whipped cream.

6 large cooking apples (7 to 8 ounces each)

3 tablespoons butter or margarine

1 cup maple syrup or maple-flavored syrup

1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Remove apple cores; beginning at stem, peel

one-third of way down. Stand apples in shallow 13-inch-by-11-inch

baking dish. Place 1 1/2 teaspoons butter into cavity of each apple.

Pour maple syrup over and around apples.

2. Bake apples, basting occasionally with syrup in baking dish, until

tender, about 1 hour 45 minutes. Serve hot, or cover and refrigerate to

serve chilled. Makes 6 servings.

Frequently Asked Questions About

Vermont Maple Products

WHAT IS THE BEST GRADE OF MAPLE SYRUP TO BUY?

Answer: The best grade of syrup to buy is the one that you like the best!

Each grade of Vermont maple syrup has the same density and clarity but

the color and flavor varies. Vermont Fancy is the lightest grade in color

and has the most delicate flavor while Vermont Grade A Dark is darker

in color and has a more pronounced maple flavor. If you want to cook or

bake with syrup, it is better to buy the darker grades so that the flavor of

the syrup isn’t over-powered by the other ingredients in your recipe.

WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO STORE MAPLE SYRUP?

Answer: Maple syrup should be stored in a cool place until opened.

Once opened it must be refrigerated. For long term storage pure maple

syrup retains its flavor best when kept in the freezer. Maple syrup will

not freeze solid and can be poured into smaller containers for use. If you

purchased syrup in tin containers, it is recommended, after opening, that

you pour it into clean, odor-free plastic or glass jars (like canning jars)

and then put those into the refrigerator or freezer.

WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO STORE MAPLE CREAM?

Answer: Maple Cream is made from pure maple syrup which is cooked

and stirred to a cream consistency. Maple cream should be refrigerated

when not in use. If you plan to keep Maple Cream for any period

of time before using, put it into the freezer to keep the consistency and

flavor at its best.

If Maple Cream separates, simply stir the syrup back into the cream

with a sturdy knife or spoon. If the container of Maple Cream has been

opened for some time and has hardened, it can be restored by placing

the container in very warm water, being careful the keep the water level

below the top of the container, and stirring the cream, once it is warm,

until it softens.

Buttermilk Pancakes

3 ounces pecans

2 cups buttermilk

1 1/2 cups quick-cooking oats, uncooked

1/2 cup all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 large eggs

Confectioners’ sugar

1 tablespoon salad oil

1 cup maple syrup

1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon, or more, to taste

1. In nonstick 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat, cook pecans until

golden brown. Cool pecans slightly; coarsely chop.

2. In large bowl, combine buttermilk, oats, flour, baking soda, salt,

eggs and 1 tablespoon confectioners’ sugar and stir just until flour is

moistened; stir in toasted pecans.

3. Over medium heat, heat same skillet until hot; brush lightly with

salad oil. Pour batter by 1/4 cups into hot skillet, making 2 or 3 pancakes

at a time. Cook until tops are bubbly and bubbles burst; edges

will look dry. With pancake turner, turn and cook until undersides are

golden; place on warm platter; keep warm. Repeat until all batter is

used, brushing skillet with more salad oil if necessary.

4. In small saucepan over medium heat, heat maple syrup until very

warm. In cup, mix cinnamon with 1 tablespoon confectioners’ sugar.

Sprinkle pancakes with cinnamon-sugar; serve with warm maple

syrup. Garnish platter with fruit. Serves 4.

(c) 2013 Hearst Communications, Inc. All rights reserved

DOES TAPPING AND TAKING SAP FROM A TREE DAMAGE IT?

Answer: Tapping and collecting sap do not harm the tree, if the guidelines

spelled out in the North American Maple Producer’s Manual 2nd

edition are followed. The North American Maple Project has monitored

hundreds of maples in Vermont for 20 years, and has found no significant

difference between the health of maples tapped yearly for syrup

making and maples that have never been tapped.

IS ANYTHING ADDED TO VERMONT MAPLE SYRUP?

Answer: Vermont maple syrup consists of maple sap, from which water

has been boiled off to achieve a density of 66.9% sugar. Vermont maple

law reads: “Maple syrup shall not be processed in any manner which

adds or removes naturally occurring soluble materials.”

The Sugarhouse. At the Bragg Farm we invite you on a free tour of a traditional sugarhouse year

preserve the original maple flavor. We are happy to share our sugaring story anytime - you can even

walk through the nearby woods where we hang 2,000 buckets!
