Hilary Hoffman formed The Vermont Hay Company, LLC in Greensboro, Vermont. Tim’s Real Easter Basket Grass was developed as an all-natural alternative to petroleum based imitation plastic grass. With the public’s growing understanding and concern for the dangers of the chemicals used in plastics, particularly to children, the product offers parents an Earth friendly, child safe option for Easter baskets. Sourcing fragrant, organic timothy hay in the Northeast Kingdom, the product has sold in nearly every state. To annualize the company, non-holiday specific hay based products are in development.
