Like Vermonters, the people of Turkey are hardworking and traditional, stubborn and generous, devoted to family and hospitality, oriented toward energy and love. Our communities are mostly rural, our foods are mostly local, our neighbors are our friends. This hilly countryside binds us to one another, to the seasons of our year, to the holidays of our culture, to the passage of our time. We raise children together, and care for families together. We raise food together, and we share it at our communal table. Our Turkish family is not out of place in Vermont, we are at home.
