We welcome neighbors, friends and visitors to learn about, taste and enjoy the wonderful foods and drinks from the Northeast Kingdom region of Vermont.

Newport Cider House Bar & Grill – This is a great addition to the Newport foodie scene. The food is as delicious as the cocktails! Try the local brews on tap.  Visit them online at

The Tasting Bar - You can taste everything from ice ciders and vodkas to great Vermont cheeses right here at our Tasting Bar. This is the retail shop of the Eden Ice Cider Winery downstairs, but we also carry a bunch of other wonderful NEK products! You can also try the Season Tasting Plate that we pair specially to go with our drinks.

Eden Ice Cider Winery - Eleanor and Albert Leger began making ice cider, a delicious sweet dessert wine, on a former diary farm in 2008. They have since added two aperitif ciders and a hard cider to their repertoire, and by the end of the year, you can see how they make it all right here in the NEK Tasting Center basement! Visit their website or their Facebook page to learn more.

Jocelyn & Cinta’s Bake Shop –  Jocelyn and Cinta use fresh, local ingredients, all natural, and with no preservatives. They do wedding and birthday cakes, as well as ANY other baked goods you may need for other special occasions. Office parties, pig roasts, baby showers… you name it, they can cater to it! Like them on Facebook here.

Butternut Mountain Maple - For the last 40+ years, David, with the help of his wife Lucy, has grown Butternut Mountain Farm into what it is today: a Vermont company known around the world for producing award-winning maple products. Their NEK Tasting Center retail shop is full of their many maple goodies! Visit their website here for more information.
