Westford Hill Distillers’ award-winning New World Aged Apple Brandy is an outstanding gift choice for locavores, fine spirits lovers, and any New Englander fond of sipping brandy in front of a fireplace. Westford Hill Distillers in Ashford, Connecticut has been making award-winning eau-de-vie (unaged fruit brandies) since the company’s founding in 1998 and began releasing aged apple brandy made entirely from Connecticut apples a few years ago.
I was so excited to learn that Seed Savers Exchange partnered with Slow Food USA to offer a 6-pack of Ark of Taste seeds. At $14.95, the Ark of Taste Collection is a budget-friendly gift any backyard gardener would love, especially those who will be excited about growing heirloom foods that are delicious enough to be part of Slow Food’s 200 strong (and growing) collection of rare and endangered foods cataloged in the Ark of Taste.

Still, they have become so popular that other breeds of turkeys nearly became extinct.
