Happening at Claire's and in Hardwick

We're in the height of the season here at Claire's. We've got snow on the ground and snowflakes on our windows - hand-stenciled and painted by Craftsbury graphic designer and Claire's server Sarah Mutrux. They are beautiful. Thank you Sarah!

Steven prepared an array of tantalizing appetizers for the crowd at a holiday party hosted by Hardwick area's agricultural businesses for their employees and families - High Mowing Seeds, Vermont Soy, Vermont Natural Coatings, Jasper Hill Farm and Pete's Greens. Steven's cheesy wheatberry balls were a standout favorite - wheatberries from Butterworks, squash from Riverside, onions from Pete, garlic from Harvest Hill and Vermont Milk Co. cheddar blended together and deep fried, served with a spicy tomato sauce from Pete's tomatoes. There are rumors that this delectable treat will hit the menu sometime soon - so stay tuned!

New Year's Eve: We would love to ring in the New Year with you! Make your reservations for New Year's Eve at Claire's. Come for dinner, come for dinner and dancing to Dog House Roses, or just come for dancing. We're taking dinner reservations for any time between 5 and 9 PM. The band will play from 10:00 to 12:30.

Gift Certificates are still available and we are thrilled to be donating $10.00 for every $100 in gift certificates sold to NOFA Vermont's Farm Share program.
