On the “New Hampshire Made” Trail: Featuring Local Products, Services & Attractions

Like many of you, when we travel we like to dine in unique local restaurants — maybe in a glam establishment, but just as often in a kitschy cafe, stay at historic hotels or cozy inns, meet local shopkeepers who know the story — and oftentimes the artisans — behind the items they sell, visit local attractions, and bring home a piece of local artwork, amazing food, or other memorabilia that will remind us of our vacation or weekend getaway long after it’s over.

As the official visitor information source for the Great North Woods and the Northern White Mountains of New Hampshire, at New Hampshire Grand we have the enviable job of introducing visitors to the diverse range of attractions, lodging, dining, events, and outdoor activities available in Northern New Hampshire.

nhmade-logo-285wide-transAnd, in case you’re not acquainted with New Hampshire Made yet, we’d like to introduce you to this statewide organization that also promotes New Hampshire-made products and services, and familiarize you with some of the northern New Hampshire businesses that are members of both our organizations.

On your next visit to the northern reaches of the Granite State, make it a point to check out these wonderful points of interest. These businesses are well versed in offering the best of “New Hampshire Grand” and “New Hampshire Made.”

 

COLEBROOK

NH_Grand_Best_Of_Le_Rendez_Vous_BakeryTo our mind, nothing compares to a loaf of freshly baked bread, and the two bakers — both Parisian transplants — at Le Rendez Vous Bakery offer a variety of wonderful breads, baguettes, and authentic French round white loaves known as batards. The baker duo also create superb Madeleines filled with creamy Belgian chocolate, delicious apple, blueberry, chocolate, rhubarb or raspberry croissants, and a number of other wonderful pastries. Stop by the colorful and quaint European-style cafe for a pastry and a cup of coffee, or get your order to go and take home a taste of Paris. The café also serves a light lunch, and is open Tuesday – Saturday, 9 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. Closed Sundays and Mondays.

 

NH_Grand_Best_Of_FiddleheadsAnyone looking for American- and Canadian-made and Fair Trade products will fine a nice assortment of fine arts and crafts and carefully selected gift items at Fiddleheads – A Great North Woods Shoppe. The store has been voted “Best Customer Service” by Colebrook’s Downtown Holiday Shoppers. You’ll also find a small art gallery here, with all of the art created by local artisans.

BETHLEHEM

RocksMapleThe Rocks Estate is a great destination any time of year, but it’s especially fun to visit the Christmas tree farm during the holiday season when you can choose and cut your own Christmas tree or select one from the retail lot. Fragrant wreaths and garlands, made on site, are also available. On weekends leading up to Christmas, The Rocks offers horse-drawn wagon rides around the beautiful 1,400-acre estate, kids can visit with Green Father Christmas and roast s’mores around the fire pit, and moms and dads can shop in the Marketplace and Gift Shops.

Fuller’s Sugarhouse is a Sweet Family Affair

Fuller’s Sugarhouse’s pure maple syrup, maple cream and maple candy is sold all over the world — and for good reason. The syrup has been judged “Best in the World” by the North American Maple Syrup Council, and Fuller’s has been awarded the Carlisle Trophy for “Best Maple Syrup in New Hampshire.” Other accolades include making Gourmet magazine’s Top Ten list, and having their maple candy featured in Rachel Ray’s EveryDay magazine as one of the top mail order treats in the US. The best accolade of all is the repeat business of hundreds of customers who won’t purchase their syrup anywhere but at Fuller’s.

Proud owners Dave and Patti Fuller, assisted by Dave’s brother Ed, have built their business from 200 taps and 40 gallons of syrup in 1972 to more than 10,500 taps that produce an amazing 4,000 gallons of syrup!

At Fuller’s Sugarhouse, quality and customer service are #1. A state-of-the-art maple evaporator ensures you are receiving the very best New Hampshire maple syrup available. The secret, says Dave, is in the boiling process and ensuring the maple syrup reaches the correct density.

Open 7 days a week year-round, Fuller’s is especially busy during maple season, when the sap flows and they are boiling. Visitors are invited to stop in for a tour and an explanation of the sugaring process and try an old-fashioned delight, sugar on snow, which is usually available during this time. Groups of people wanting a tour are asked to give a day’s notice, if possible.

Fuller’s Sugarhouse is participating in New Hampshire Maple Weekend on March 25 and 26, a statewide celebration of maple sugaring, when more than 100 sugarhouses around the state welcome visitors with special events and tastings

The Sugarhouse’s fully stocked country store at 267 Main Street in Lancaster, features pottery, artwork, and handmade kitchen items, along with a wide variety of maple products. Fuller’s specializes in gift baskets. All mail orders are filled promptly, and Fuller’s ships around the world.

Can’t get to the Sugarhouse? Fuller’s products are sold in stores and specialty shops around the state, including Whole Foods in Bedford and Nashua, the Manchester-Boston Regional Airport, the I-93 Hooksett Visitor Center General Store, on both the north and southbound sides, and the I-95 Hampton New Hampshire Made Store, both north and southbound, as well as in Massachusetts and Vermont. Fuller’s website has a complete list of locations.

Fuller’s pure maple syrup isn’t just for pancakes. Visit the website to discover dozens of recipes that will convince you to keep the delicious syrup on hand for all your cooking needs.

Fuller’s is open Monday – Saturday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
