Posted on: 3:23 pm Mon Sep 19th, 2011
For at least a decade now, North America has been swept up in a full-blown pizza revolution, one characterized by a cult of Neapolitan pizza and an almost fanatical concern with authenticity and "Verace Pizza Napoletana" accreditation, not to mention a considerable amount of boasting and posturing.

Several local businesses and locations have won high marks from Yankee Magazine's Travel Guide to New England.
Lareau Farm is located 3/4 of a mile south of
Waitsfield & Irasville on the right hand side of Route 100, the heart of the Mad River Valley.
Lareau Farm is one of the Mad River Valley's first farms, established in 1794 by Simeon and Abiah Stoddard (Waitsfield's first physician!). An addition was built in 1832, now the American Flatbread Bakery, but originally built for carriages, horses, pigs, and as a slaughterhouse. In 1895, the big red barn was constructed. At the time housing Pliny Lockwood's dairy operation, the structure is now home of the annual Art in the Big Red Barn. We are proud that again Lareau Farm is a working farm, providing organic produce for our table.
Adjacent to the Inn, the Lareau Farm is also proud to be the home of the American Flatbread Company and 1.5 acres of organic vegetable gardens. We are partners with the Vermont Fresh Network, a partnership between farmers and chefs bringing sustainable agriculture from farm to plate.
While you're settled in here, you may take a peaceful walk along the winding river through the meadows and jump in the Mad River for a refreshing dip if you get hot enough! Explore some of Vermont history at the old family cemetary on the knoll. Play croquet on our expansive lawn or settle on the porch with a juicy novel. If your timing is right, you may see deer, wild turkeys, river otters, and possibly a coyote! See how the staff's gardens are growing or hike up the hill into the woods to the clay deposit that provides clay for American Flatbread's earthen ovens.
The Inn offers two sitting rooms: a more formal living room with a cozy fireplace and the front parlor--a bit more relaxed with a television/dvd/cable and toys/games for children of all ages. Our large, sunny dining room and scenic porches are a great place to sit and reflect, plan your day, or reminisce about how fun your vacation has been so far!
The names of the rooms are from our mission statement with the American Flatbread Company ...we hope to practice these powerful words in our lives daily.
MASSAGE ROOM NOW OPEN! Hurry up to get here, and let the relaxation begin.... our new massage room allows you to book a massage therapist to come right to you during your stay at the Inn. We can happily recommend several excellent massage therapists depending on your needs and wants. So slide into your slippers and get ready to become totally pampered. Give a call to get your appointment.
Our pavilon with a festival flatbread oven, bonfire pit, wwod stove, tent sides, twinkle lighting and restrooms is the site of many wedding celebrations, community sponsered events, concerts and artist workshops. Please call for more information to book or visit our website to check on upcoming events.
