It’s cold and dreary out there, so why not warm up by eating tons of food and then taking a nap?

We want to see all your best comfort foods - we’re talking hand-me-down family recipes that really stick to your ribs. Soups, pasta bakes, meatloaves, and copious amounts of dairy and carbs - whatever makes you happy when it’s cold out!

Enter your best recipe today to win some amazing handcrafted cutting boards and tools from Vermont Farm Table!
