Did you know that King Arthur Flour Co. is Mecca for all those who bake, try to bake, want to learn to bake, or simply enjoy eating fantastically delicious baked items? That pretty much covers all of us, doesn’t it? And did you know that King Arthur Flour Co. is in Norwich, Vermont, just an hour away from Rabbit Hill Inn? This is why so many guests visit there during their stay with us. Founded in 1790, it’s the oldest flour company in America. Today, it is a baker’s paradise! Here, you will find everything, discover exciting new things, learn new things, and taste new things. Consider it a baker’s “Disney experience” (sorry, no parade). Three key tips — (1) if you go, go hungry (enjoy lunch in their awesome cafe or a snack in the King Arthur Bakery); (2) make sure there is plenty of room in the trunk of your car; and (3) plan on spending some time there. If you take your time, you’ll enjoy it more and not feel overwhelmed.
