Happy 4th Birthday TVF!

Each year that we celebrate another birthday for Try Vermont First is like celebrating a family birthday. I love sharing the passion for all things local with my whole family, and together we love sharing Vermont giveaways with you!


It’s great to hear my children try to teach others about the importance of shopping locally. They are my little parrots and are learning to appreciate what’s made and offered in their great state.
To celebrate our last 4 years (and many more to come) we’ve collected prizes from five great Vermont businesses!

This year’s prizes include:



*Two jars of Vermont Peanut Butter. Win a jar of Creamy PB, an everyday staple at our house and a jar of Maple Walnut PB which offers just the right amount of sweetness. Their simple and all natural ingredients are blended to perfection! LIKE Vermont Peanut Butter on Facebook and stay up to date on where you can find their products and tasting demos near you.


*A one year family membership to Shelburne Farms. I wish that I could live on the farm. It is magical and one of my favorite places in all of Vermont. My family loves to visit the animals in the farmyard, hike on the trails, take a tractor ride, picnic and more! If you have never been to Shelburne Farms start planning your trip today! LIKE Shelburne Farms on Facebook and see what’s in season at the farm right now.


*Bag Balm! Why Bag Balm? For two reasons… 1. My blog’s first ever giveaway was for Bag Balm, see here, and 2. We use Bag Balm all the time for chapped lips and hands! Our winner will receive a new .25 ml tube and a 1oz tin. LIKE Bag Balm on Facebook – help them to reach 100,000 fans this year!


*DONUTS!! Celebratory Green Mountain Mini Baked Donuts! One must celebrate a Big Blog Birthday with sweet and fun donuts! We have ordered donuts for lots of family events including birthdays, Christmas, Valentine’s Day and more. Win a dozen mini donuts shipped right to your door. LIKE Green Mountain Mini Baked on Facebook and see their creative process and products.


*A gift certificate to J.Morgan’s Steakhouse in Montpelier. Enjoy lunch, dinner or weekend brunch. Get an award winning steak, fresh seafood, seasonally fresh favorites and more. Reserve your table for their Mother’s Day brunch! LIKE J.Morgan’s Steakhouse on Facebook and tell them we sent you there!

This is my family, loving all things VERMONT! We hope that you will find joy in our state too!

  1. They all look amazing . The gift certificate to J Morgan Steakhouse would be perfect. The food looks so Yummy!! And the membership to Shelburne Farm would also be great! Happy 4th Birthday TVF !

  2. I have loved J Morgan for over 12 years! I haven’t been back in awhile, but its worth it every time I go. I haven’t had the pleasure of trying Green Mt. Mini Baked Donuts yet, but they always look so decadent! Shelburne farms is a beautiful place & who doesn’t love VT peanut butter & Bag Balm? What a great giveaway!

  3. I would love to win the Shelburne Farms membership. I am a native Vermonter who has never visited Shelburne Farms. Wait, what? I know, shame on me! I love that you feature so many different Vermont products AND experiences on your blog. Happy Birthday!
