Fresh Terroir - Sugarbush Stoke Exchange

"You are what you eat" is good way to inform food decisions, but it has a deeper meaning. The building blocks of our food are important too. From the ground up, every little factor influences the final product.

There is something a little special in the terroir of the Mad River Valley. With summer's bounty in full swing, it's the best time of the year to taste Vermont's offerings. In a very real way, each trail-side berry and farmer's market tomato you eat, becomes a part of you. Even when you go home, you've still got a little Valley inside.

So if you find yourself riding in traffic like dodging trees on singletrack,  jumping in the neighborhood pool with visions of Warren Falls in mind or staring at imaginary vistas of the Green Mountains from the windows of high-rise buildings, now you know why.

VT's own Lea Davison race in the Olympics on Saturday.

While the official start of fall is more than amonth away, school starts in only a couple weeks. Better be here now, to get another sweet taste of Valley summer before it's gone.
