Buxton 143441.jpg

ORWELL — In early 2017 when Andy Buxton became the second generation to run Orwell’s Buxton’s Store, he said he planned to “amp up the deli and meat collection,” become a “destination craft beer and wine store,” and expand its pre-prepared food offerings.

About two-and-a-half years later Buxton has successfully checked those items off the list, and he said, exceeded the store’s financial projections by expanding catering as well.

And if there were an award for perseverance and courage in the face of adversity, Campbell and his wife, Nikki Juvan, would be odds-on favorites.

MIDDLEBURY — Grace Sauerwald’s two children are grown and have long since left the house. It’s just her and her husband, Lee.

Or is it?

Sauerwald feels like she’s part of a 100-person family, and their home is the Middlebury Natural Foods Co-op (MNFC). Though not bound by blood, it’s a family that works together and looks out for its own, carrying Sauerwald through an epic health scare that fortunately ended with her getting a life saving new kidney earlier this year.
