Ruth A Savage (ruthasavage)

Joined 3 years ago from Wardsboro, VT and Charlotte, ME




Also follow me on:

Well, I wear many hats (as so many of us do). I recently resigned as a Vacation Sales Specialist at Stratton Mountain Resort in Vermont in order to concentrate on our family businesses. I have a business called Mountain Rogues and myself, my daughter & my son research, create and market period style products at Renaissance Faires, SCA events and Pirate Festivals. My SCA name is "Bennet Archer" and my Ren Faire name is "Countess de le Dwarf". Another venture is my daughter, Amanda, & I (plus they men in our family) make and grow products to sell at Farmers Markets in Maine & Vermont. This business is the Savage Forest Farm. We believe in sustainable farming practices. I started writing these hub pages as another creative outlet stemming from the Mountain Rogues and Savage Forest Farm endeavors. You can check out both businesses on Facebook and each has a website. I also act as secretary for my husband & son's home inspection and carpentry businesses.

    Foraging for Ramps nets you some intense garlicky goodness for your cooking pleasure. My husband and son found a great area (but it's a secret!) to collect these lovelies in our area.

    If you love almond milk but want it without any additives found in the commercial versions (regular and organic) out there, make your own. It's easy plus you have almond meal left to use in cooking!

    This is a great side dish using the bounty from your garden. Of course, if you don't garden, get your fresh veggies from farmer markets, farm stands or the fresh produce aisle of your supermarket.

    Raised bed gardens are a wonderful way to get a lot of produce for your family. Especially as most of New England has a short growing season.
