SMF Bacon on a Stick by Berdas at Champlain Valley Fair

Berda’s at the Fair

Each week we supply Berda’s Restaurant (on Facebook) in Essex Center, Vermont with our famous uncured dry rub maple bacon which we make with real Vermont maple syrup and Berda’s features in many of their delicious dishes. Very tasty!

This year Berda’s has secured the “Bacon-on-a-Stick” vendor spot at the Champlain Valley Fair using 450 lbs of our delicious bacon which they bake, fry and then dip in a glaze of more maple syrup.

Four hundred and fifty pounds of bacon is a lot of bacon! It is enough to fill three 120 quart coolers. We delivered to the Berda’s Restaurant in Essex Center and completely filled their refrigerator.

On a side note related to pigs, in the livestock tent there was a very overweight sow with three piglets. She seriously needs to lose weight. Hay would be good. Fresh greens would do her well as she’s getting too many calories. A good way to lower her weight is to feed her something high in fiber to produce gut fill, a sense of fullness. Hay or pasture is ideal fed prior to feeding her hog feed as the latter is high in calories, which she does not need. Research has shown that gut filling helps improve sow performance. She also needs a toy, or two. Someone, please, tell them she’s bored.

    Hi Walter.

    Clicking on the link to “Weighing a Pig” takes me to the page

    I even tried “Open in a New Tab” and it took me to the same page.

    I think “Fresh greeds would do her well as she’s getting too many calories.” should be “Fresh greens…”

  3. Tim says:

    Also, “Hay or pasture is idea fed..” I read “ideally fed” or “ideal feed”. I got the meaning. Keep up the good work.

    Hello, the link mentioned above is still redirecting to ‘Bacon on a stick’. :(

  5. Andy says:

    Last paragraph second line, Fresh greeds ? shouldn’t it be fresh greens ?

  6. Ryan DeVries says:

    Walter, “fresh greeds” do you mean “fresh greens”?

    Is it snowing yet in Vermont? :-)

    We had our first 2″ here in Montgomery County, Maryland. Of course the schools were closed too!! (Not that I blame them, most people do not realize that the northern part of the county is still pretty rural and considering the crummy state of the roads today, probably for the best)
