You have arrived in the heart of the Champlain Valley of Vermont, and the Lake Champlain "West Coast"
of the Green Mountain State.  Our heart is Middlebury, Shire Town of Addison County.  Our playground stretches from Rutland to Burlington, from the colorful Green Mountains to beautiful Lake Champlain.

This Community Network was created to showcase our local Champlain Valley small businesses,
and to provide visitors to our area with a closer look a our community, it's people, and it's activities.

Champlain Orchards

Bill Suhr represents the progressive trend among Vermont's famous orchards.  While maintaining a 100 year old tradition of a family-owned and operated orchard, he maintains environmentally conscious farming practices and offers value-added products at his farm stand which includes not only many fine varieties of apples, but also cider, fresh-baked pies, apple butter and applesauce.  Seasonally available organic foods such as fresh squash, pumpkins, fruit pies, dilly beans, and sauerkraut are available both at the orchard and at Vermont grocery stores, natural food markets, restaurants and farm stands.  His products are available for shipment across the U.S. as well as pick-your-own products during the harvest season.

Most of these nice folks below are our sponsors, who make this site possible.

We're always looking for new and interesting things about our beloved Champlain Valley, so if you know of a wonderful place or activity that our visitors might also be interested in, drop us a line at 

We're also interested in original content from talented writers who can produce well-researched and genuinely original stuff that our folks might enjoy reading.  You'll get the same pay we do... the pleasure of sharing your knowledge with the rest of our community.

Please Note we have absolutely no advertising anywhere in this network, so please don't write and ask to buy a banner ad, or to participate in some sort of a click-thru scheme, or stuff like that.  Our sponsor-members, whose web site links are shown above, are our sole source of financial support for this unique community network.  If you're a local or regional business or attraction, you may qualify to become one of our sponsors, but that's all the "advertising" we allow.

Thanks for Visiting!
