'the quiet side of the Mountain'. Outstanding natural beauty, great recreational opportunities, and unspoiled
Vermont villages combine with modern shopping and services, lodging, and restaurants in this area of the

foot of Mount Mansfield, Vermont's highest peak, and the road through the Notch, Route 108, is one of two
officially designated scenic highways in the state. During the winter months a few miles of Route 108 are
closed at the summit, and the Notch becomes a haven for snowshoeing, skiing, and ice climbing. With two
major ski resorts adjacent to the Notch, it remains the focal point of activity throughout the year. At
Jeffersonville, Route 108 and the cold, clear Brewster River winding alongside it meet with Route 15, the
area's main east-west highway, and with the larger Lamoille River. All this makes the area both easily accessible and rich in places to hike, canoe, fish, bike, and relax.

Honey Gardens [ Apitherapy raw honey from Champlain Valley ] - see 'recipes'
Apitherapy honey has never been heated or filtered, and thus it retains the beneficial traces of pollen,
propolis, and beeswax, which the flowers and bees have put there. These contain healthful minerals,
vitamins, enzymes, amino acids, and carbohydrates. Honey forms crystals around these particles, which you
see on the surface or by holding a jar up to the light. Within a month or so after the fall harvest, Apitherapy
honey will crystallize. To soften or reliquefy honey, place it in a warm place or in warm water.
