The Name

Though we’re a long way from home, or as Bruce Springsteen said, “home is a long, long way from us”, the core principles that make Vermont what it is – resourcefulness and respect for our surroundings – are the foundation of our company.

The truncated version of Vermonter comes courtesy of The Phonographic Manual by Charles Morrell, published in 1901, where he outlines the most efficient and resourceful pronunciation of words in the English language. Efficient and resourceful is what we’re all about. It seemed like a good fit.
