Spring is Here!

What most folks already know, but is definitely worth mentioning, is that we are located right on a VAST Trail. That’s right, you can bring a bike and take a ride down to Poultney or walk the trail through some very beautiful countryside.  Or, you can just enjoy a scoop of Wilcox Ice Cream and sit out front on our cafe tables. Oh yeah and let’s not forget that our neighbor is the Birdseye Diner, a perfect place for a meal with fellow motorists. It makes a lot of sense shopping at the Village Store.
