Living in Burlington
Why would a couple of guys from Long Island decide to come to Burlington, Vermont to start an ice cream company?
Where they were dazzled by the natural beauty of this New England state? Green Mountains to the east, Lake Champlain to the west, a patchwork of northern forest, working farms and orchards, and the sunsets are to die for. And of course, there’s the world famous foliage in the fall.
Perhaps it was the dynamic arts and music scene that spawned Phish (ha!) and includes cultural celebrations like the Discover Jazz Festival, the UVM and St. Mike’s theater series, and the South End Art Hop.
Maybe they thought skiing, snowboarding, boating, hiking, biking, camping and running the Vermont City Marathon1 would give them the chance to work off some of the ice cream.
Then again, maybe they thought all of these things plus tight-knit communities and great school systems made the area a great place to raise a family.
Who knows what it was that made these guys decide Burlington was home, but 35 years later they’re still here, and we agree they made the right choice!
1Fact: the Vermont City Marathon has only been around 26 years, but Ben and Jerry aren't really the marathon running type anyway.
