Paul Drumm

Paul Drumm is the owner of Kenyon Corn Meal Company, and is an expert on grist mills and their history in New England. Having spent his childhood in and around Kenyon’s, Paul became a full-time employee in 1980. His love for mills and milling continues to be a career as well as a hobby. Paul feels that the honor of being associated with Kenyon’s is only surpassed by a day sailing with his three sons, Ben, Kevin, and John.

Mr. Dick Donnelly

Dick Donnelly has been the resident Johnny Cake expert for Kenyon Corn Meal Co. Inc., since he began working for the company in the early 70s. Innovative with his culinary endeavors, he knows how to reach forward with his latest creations as well as hold steadfast to the tradition of the Rhode Island Johnny Cake.

Mr. Burr Morse

Burr Morse is a seventh-generation Vermont hill farmer. He and his wife, Betsy, own and operate Morse Farm Maple Sugarworks in East Montpelier, Vt. Burr has been working at the farm full time since graduating from the University of Vermont with his bachelor’s in plant and soil science in 1971. During his tenure, Morse Farm has grown from a diversified vegetable/beef cow/maple farm into an internationally known destination and cross country ski center that hosts 60,000 visitors per year. Burr is the author of two books, “Sweet Days and Beyond” and “Golden Times,” and pens a newspaper column and an email newsletter.

Mrs. Linda Dimmick

Linda Dimmick and her husband Rob operate Neighborly Farms, a Vermont dairy farm that produces award-winning organic cheeses. Linda was raised in Michigan and first worked as a dental hygienist upon moving to rural Vermont. In 2001, she began making cheese at the farm that has been owned by her husband’s family for more than 30 years. In that first year, Linda made 10,000 pounds of cheese on her own! Since then, Neighborly Farms has become a thriving business that keeps busy several employees in addition to Linda, Rob and their three sons. The farm is totally organic, meaning its 48 Holstein cows receive no hormones or antibiotics and eat only organic feed grown without pesticides.
