Claire's Happenings

From Kristina Michelsen

Hey all,I hope everyone is enjoying this incredible weather! My favorite time of year. A few trees up here are turning with many more to come. The summer folks have gone home to their winter habitats. We wish you all a happy and healthy year. I must say that this summer we met some incredibly wonderful people at Claire's and we look forward to your return.

Music and Events in Hardwick: Last Thursday, the fabulous vocal and songwriting powerhouse Erin McDermott with her band the Dixie Red Delights entertained us at Claire's. On Wednesday October 1, the Highfields Institute brings author and environmental activist Bill McKibben to the Hardwick Town House. He will be speaking from 5:30 to 6:30 PM. Admission is $10.00 and all proceeds go to Highfields Institute, a cutting edge composting facility in Hardwick. To learn more about what Highfields does and for more info about the Bill McKibben event, you can go to their website at Of course, we send our compost to Highfields, where it gets turned back into soil to grow the food we feed you at Claire's. A beautiful circle.

Cooking on Main Street: Steven has some yummy delicious new items on the menu. His acorn sqash soup with curry is out of this world. He is truly a soup magician. He is also serving a scrumptious cheese fondue made with Jasper Hill Bayley Hazen Blue Cheese and their Constant Bliss. And did you hear the rumor that a turkey curry pot pie is on the menu? Hungry yet?

Just one more beer delivery to go today and then I'm off to the High Mowing Seeds Field Day to wander around their acres of test plots. Very fun. You can check out what High Mowing is up to at their website Today they are going to tell us all about their plans to grow sow beans in Vermont and then process them - at Vermont Soy in Hardwick, of course.'t forget to check in at our blog at for more info about our goings on.There you have it. Enjoy your week and we hope to see you soon. Peace.
