While perhaps a bit on an exaggeration, these are definitely the most common professions & trades of people I know in Vermont.
But there does exist one group larger than any that I named above, in fact this group encompasses some of the above named:
the small, local businesses of Vermont.
They are indeed the heart & backbone of working Vermont. So any time I can support a one of the business, I am all over it.
Without them, I would not be work & live in Vermont.
And anytime I can, I am going promote these business because there are so many fantastic ones...
