ORWELL — In a barn at the Hall and Breen Farm on Monday morning, two lines of cows jostled for position, eager to enter the single-cow berths where they’d be rewarded with troughs of grain.

On the other side of the berths, Louis Hall and two maintenance workers watched as the robotic arms grasped each cow’s udders, milked, then released. As a cow left the stall, she pushed aside a bar that allowed the next cow to enter.

BURLINGTON — A couple Fridays ago, veteran chef James Bachand of New Haven received a last minute request to whip up a delicious meal on short notice. While that’s not unusual for a professional like Bachand with more than three decades of experience in the kitchen, this request came with a twist.

This meal would be judged against dishes prepared by other professional chefs as part of a competition at an Iron Chef competition at the Reinhart Food Service annual trade show in Burlington.

BRISTOL — Students at three Addison Northeast Supervisory Union schools have kissed desserts, processed foods and daily hamburgers goodbye because the ANeSU’s new Food Service Cooperative isn’t having any of it.

ADDISON COUNTY — What’s the big difference between this year’s maple sugar season and last year’s?

The snow.

A burden to some and a blessing to others, local sugarmakers say this winter’s massive snowfall is setting the tone for the year’s sugar season.

“It’s just been a struggle,” said Bill Heffernan of Heffernan Family Sugarworks in Starksboro about tapping 9,500 trees beginning on Feb. 16. “It’s tough in three to four feet of snow.”
