Watch the fall colors explode as we travel along a country road past Plymouth Notch, the birthplace of former President Calvin Coolidge. As we continue to explore the quilting of colors, we’ll stop for a visit to a special organic grain farm. This is a seventh generation farm owner who spent a lifetime in the dairy business and later transitioned from dairy to growing organic grains. Tom decided to not only grow grains but to process them as well. He spent the last 30 years perfecting his craft and soon developed the Nitty Gritty Grain Company, born out of the idea that organic, small batch grains taste better and are better for you than conventional produced grains. Tom wanted to create an honest brand that customers could trust in quality and know the source of their product. Nitty Gritty is a single-source brand, with grain grown and produced by owner, Tom Kenyon, in the Champlain Valley of Vermont. Following this visit we’ll travel to some of the most scenic fall color regions in all of Vermont. We’ll stay the night in the small town of Waterbury, nestled in one of the most beautiful areas in New England. (B, D)
