We are Eric and Francine Chittenden, and we each grew up in Vermont. Eric is an ancestor of Vermont's 1st Governor, Thomas Chittenden. Francine was born in Quebec, and thus her 1st language is French. We both grew up on dairy farms. We got married in 1973, and founded the Cold Hollow Cider Mill in 1974, which rapidly evolved into one of Vermont's premier 'must-see' attractions. In 1980 we created Governor Tom's restaurant, an immensely popular eatery for 8 years. We sold the cider mill in 2000 to Paul & Gail Brown so that we could fulfill our growing 'bucket lists.' The mill continues to be very successful.
Currently Eric holds a license to sail as Captain on the largest ships in the world, and works primarily on the Hawaiian run as a deck officer. Francine is Director of Human Resources for the Vermont Foodbank.
