One year ago I launched Try Vermont First. I wanted to share Vermont products with friends, family, readers, and shoppers near and far. It’s important to know what your neighbors are making and selling. It’s important to support them.
Over the last year I have found so many products that I never knew were made in Vermont. I have worked with almost 100 companies and artists. I have given away prizes to more than 150 winners.
I’m on a roll! Over the next year I look forward to sharing more Vermont made products with YOU! I will continue to ask for your help in spreading the word about Try Vermont First. Follow this blog (see right side bar). LIKE us on Facebook and share us with your friends who would love to win great Vermont products. Follow us on Twitter. SPREAD THE WORD. Currently Try Vermont First is my hobby. It comes after work, after my two kids have gone to bed, after the family is taken care of. I appreciate your support. I love getting emails from readers letting me know how much they love Try Vermont First, and about the new Vermont products they have tried after reading about them here.
My children are a BIG reason why I blog about Vermont products. My four year old son is already starting to understand why it is important to buy locally and daily will ask me “Was this made in Vermont?”.
Changes in the new year include the chance for companies and artists to advertise on Try Vermont First. I am also looking for a new blog host and if you would like to help with this big challenge please touch base with me. I also will no longer be announcing giveaway winners in a separate blog post. I will add the information to the original post and share the information on Facebook. I will also email winners right away.
What else is coming? Reviews for Vermont made pasta, almond butter, bbq sauce and more. And lots of giveaways!
