Swineheart's Signature Sauces - Meredith, NH
We discovered Gary & Mary MacDonald at the Made in NH Expo and asked them to come to the Sugar Hill Market. Swineheart's Sauces celebrate the regional flavors of American BBQ and beyond. The line of sauces represent the many regional flavors of BBQ; from Tennessee to Texas to Hawaii. There is a flavor for all to enjoy. All are gluten free, fat free, and vegetarian.
They also have some delicious recipes on their website including a Bacon & Beer Mac 'n Cheese that took 2nd place in a 2014 competition. We think that if they had used Harman's Cheddar, they might of taken first . . . but that's just our opinion. If you do miss them at the market, Harman Cheese carries a few of their products. Check out their website: www.swineheartsauce.com
They liked the Lupine Celebration so much last year, that this year they are bringing the BBQ to go with the sauces. MacDaddy's Rollin' Smoke won NH Magazine's Best of NH BBQ. You'll find the BBQ at the Carolina Crapo Memorial Building' s lawn (that's the building across from the Post Office and Harman's Cheese). The menu will include Sausage Rolls, Pulled Pork Tacos, and Hot Dogs (of course). They are also bringing take out containers so that you can take some home for a delicious meal. Come hungry to the market to see why they won Best of NH! They also cater but the calendar looks quite full for this year, visit the website: http://www.macdaddysrollinsmokebbq.com/
The Rocks Estate - Bethlehem, NH
The Rocks Estate is best known as a Christmas tree farm. But as the North Country Conservation & Education Center for the Society for the Protection of New Hampshire Forests, the 1,400-acre property offers much more. Beyond the neat rows of Christmas trees lined by perfect stone walls lies a world of history, wildlife, and experiential learning. The property is open to visitors year-round, presenting both structured and self-guided tours and programs. Choose a beautiful tree at Christmas time, discover the sweet process of creating maple syrup in early spring, enjoy the revival of vernal pools as the snow melts, the full bloom of summer, and the kaleidoscope of color in the fall. The trails are open daily, year-round, from dawn to dusk. Visit The Rocks - to find a tree, enjoy a picnic in our formal gardens, look for wildlife, or just enjoy the view! For more information, visit their website: www.therocks.org
The Rocks Estate have been part of our markets for several years as parking volunteers and as seminar presenters.
Dodge's Sugar Shack - Landaff, NH
If you haven't heard, Maple Syrup grading is changing - stop by Jeff''s tent to have the new grades/tastes explained. Jeff Dodge bottles his own maple syrup in glass and traditional jugs. It takes about 40 gallons of sap to make one gallon of Maple Syrup. But it takes 2 to 6 Sugar Maple trees to produce that sap in one season (dependent on the weather). Jeff has to tap those trees, gather the sap, heat the boiler, and boil the sap several hours to make make the syrup. Now if you did all that work, what would you charge for a gallon of pure Maple Syrup? If you would like to know what Jeff is charging and buy some, you can reach him by e-mail at: firstname.lastname@example.org

Mt. Crescent Crafts - Randolph, New Hampshire
Sara has been creating hand-crafted wooden figures based on seven generations of her family's history in northern New Hampshire; sharing and teaching others how wonderful her family's history is through art. The figures represent a moment in time of a real person in the Boothman family. Spanning seven generations in Northern New Hampshire, personalities of farmers and woodsmen, builders of hiking trails and mountain huts, hotel proprietors, homemakers, carpenters, and photographers, are handcrafted for your enjoyment. Currently there are 20 in the collection with more to come as the stories emerge from researching our family’s history. All figures are limited editions. Only 200 of each personality will be sold, and each is signed, numbered and comes with “Our Story.” Accessories (mini-baskets, knapsacks, snowshoes) are sold separately.
On Saturday and Sunday at 11 am at the Carolina Crapo Memorial Building, Sara will be speaking and sharing stories of her family history with an emphasis on her memories of growing up pole fishin' and feeding lambs. She is also open to telling stories about any of the characters in her family, just ask. Her family has such a rich history that has been woven by life in New Hampshire and the changes that have taken place over the decades.

Crosstown Motors - Littleton, NH
Crosstown Motors is a generous supporter and sponsor of our markets. Last year they sponsored our well-attended autumn concert with the Vermont Fiddle Orchestra. This year they are sponsoring The Maple Leaf Seven concert to give us some jazz and swing on Sunday afternoon at 1 pm. We welcome them to the market with a few of their vehicles so you can see what this local dealership has to offer. A few years ago, they brought the vehicles over on Friday and that evening as we were were arranging them on the field, one car had us stumped as to how to start it, but we got it figured out. I noticed that I didn't lack for help in driving the vehicles into position on the field even though it was after 7 pm (some are quite sporty). Stop by this year and see what cars they have brought out for display. Also, we would appreciate it, if you would take the time to thank them for being one of the sponsors of our Festival Concerts. Their support is a major factor in keeping music at our concerts and keeping the concerts free.
My family has been buying vehicles from them for several years. A few years ago, a friend of mine couldn't find the car she wanted and she'd been searching for a year so I asked Tim (who is Tom's person at the auto auctions) to find just want Linda wanted. Tim found it - Linda liked the price and the e-mail photos; so she purchased the vehicle (without seeing it in person) and I drove it to Pennsylvania where Linda was waiting to drive it back to Ohio. Check out Crosstown Motors - Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep and Ram.
Deeda's Baskets - Bloomfield, VT
Linda is a native Vermonter, having lived in the Northeast Kingdom all of her life. The women in her family have traditionally been artistic on some level, whether sewing, weaving, cooking, painting, or gardening to name a few. She finds herself wanting to do it all, or at least making an attempt. She took a basket weaving class from a local woman about 10 years ago and has studied with other basket weavers as she continues to perfect her art.
Over the years, Linda has exhibited basketry at art shows and sold at many craft fairs. Many of her baskets have been given as gifts, something that will last a lifetime. She uses reed in various sizes and colors to create her baskets. Many of them are from patterns, although she also makes her own designs. The beauty of a basket, is that no two are alike; each one is unique. Most of her baskets are traditional and functional, others are decorative. Each basket has a name, although many are used for something entirely different ... a laundry basket becomes a wood basket next to a fireplace or wood stove ... a gathering basket holds magazines next to your favorite chair ... a toy basket holds towels or you favorite pet's toy ... uses are endless.
Linda will demonstrate her craft and sell her unique baskets. She has classes all year round, so contact her through her website to sign up for a class. If you would like Linda to make a custom basket for you, check out her website: http://www.deedasbaskets.com
Jessica L. Fligg - Ashland, New Hampshire
Jessica L. Fligg, who is from Ashland, New Hampshire, has always enjoyed creating things. As a child, she drew with her great-grandmother and her parents even let her paint on her home’s basement walls. She continued the exploration of her talents by studying at the NH Institute of Art. Jessica strives each day to use her talents in some creative way and each day she discovers that there are always new things to move on to. Jessica’s favorite subject is landscapes and she sees the grandeur of the Lord’s mighty hand within every landscape. God is Jessica’s only true artist and she takes her inspiration from his masterpiece:
Every day God gives us a different sky and a whole new set of colors in every season. “When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained . . .” [Psalm 8:3]. God created everything down to the smallest spec. I look forward to each new day for another adventure to be expressed with a brush. Jessica Fligg paints her landscapes in oils and watercolors, working both in her studio and en plein air. New Hampshire provides her with an inexhaustible source of subject matter. She tries to connect the past with the present as she researches and explores locations; noting with interest how a place has changed from a century ago. While on vacation or hiking, Jessica keeps a watercolor journal that will later inspire her painting in the studio. Besides painting, Jessica is an artist with her camera and is able to New Hampshire’s beauty through photograpy. If you would like to see more of her work before June, visit her website: www.jessica-fligg-artist.com

Family-owned and operated by Kim & George Stroup, Old Man Maple strives for a healthy balance of traditional sugarmaking with modern technology. They collect maple sap by a tubing system from maple trees located in Sugar Hill and then transport to their sugarhouse to boil it into maple syrup. The maple syrup then goes through a syrup filter press before bottling to produce a clear, clean maple syrup.
They adhere to sustainable practices in their sugarbush and follow organic guidelines. Old Man Maple's syrup is inspected and tested annually by the NH Dept of Agriculture, Markets & Food (a voluntary program) earned the NH Seal of Quality for the 2014 crop. In addition to their syrup, Kim & George will have maple sugar for sale this year. Maple Sugar is one of the healthiest alternatives to white sugar and is easily substituted 1:1 in any recipe. Stop by for a sample of maple sugar at their booth! They are also building their website: http://oldmanmaple.com/Welcome.html

Sheep Shear Cuttings - St. Johnsbury, Vermont
Back in 1996, Carolyn Guest introduced us to the Polish folk art of Wycinanki. Those were the days before we had our open-air markets (from 1996 to 1999); Carolyn would come over with her sheep shears during the Lupine Festival and demonstrate this folk art of paper cutting that she learned from her IFYE (International 4-H Youth Exchange) experience in Poland in the 70's.
Carolyn creates original art by cutting paper with her huge sheep shears. Her cut outs are inspired by her rural Vermont heritage and collaborative designs with her clients. At the market, Carolyn demonstrates her craft throughout the day. It is fascinating to watch her take these shears designed for clipping sheep's wool and turn out the artwork she does. At the market, she does freehand silhouettes of your profile - a one of a kind remembrance of your visit to our Sugar Hill Market.
She has cards, matted prints, and framed prints. She was honored as a Vermont artisan and presented Laura Bush with a paper cutting for the White House Christmas Tree in 2006. Click on her www.sheepshearcuttings.com to see or to order some of her beautiful cuttings. Also listen carefully when you are on the website and you can hear her cutting! You can also e-mail Carolyn as she enjoys doing special orders. We carry a selection of her cards in the store, I'm partial to her Christmas cards.
Wabanaki Beadwork - Whitefield, New Hampshire
Rhonda Besaw draws from her Abenaki roots to design and create her Wabanaki beadwork. Her ancestors have lived in southern Quebec and the Connecticut River Valley of northern New Hampshire and Vermont for hundreds of years. In 2006, while visiting the Abbe Museum in Maine, Rhonda was fascinated by the beautiful little purses made years ago by Wabanaki hands. Rhonda was inspired to make her own purses; not reproductions but artwork inspired by nature and history, made in the same manner as style as the original purses she saw in Maine: "Through this mix of old and new, traditional and contemporary, I hope to honor those who have gone before me and give to those in the future."
