we always order harrington hams from richmond vt for gifts for out of state family. the bacon is wonderful, and imo the best deal is the chef's choice which has lots of smoked things for pea soup and bacon ends which are so good.
we also have had good luck with harry and david fruits.
also lovedlovedloved zingerman's foods across the board. i received a gift packaage from them which was amazing--makes me so sad i can't eat wheat any more,
also the cold hollow cider house in waterbury vt has lots of yummy stuff, too, including maple syrup.
