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!

Bacon Ready to Deliver to Berda’s at the Fair
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.
