Get in touch with the librarians at the Vermont History Center in Barre. They have a searchable database of farm journals from the period you're looking at and LOVE to talk about them.

This is one from their collection in which a young man sketched out his fields and what was in them (in this case, grass for livestock grazing and other crops) and also wrote journal entries about his life.

Agreed. It's not like anyone is claiming they have Vermont Style pizza or trying to make it happen, it's just food writers doing what food writers do. I grew up in Minneapolis and the one place that declared to have "Minneapolis Style" pizza was a neighborhood chain that was sub-par at best. Bring that cardboard trash to the National Pizza Convention* and you'd get laughed all the way out to the dumpster.
