Vermont Juice Company to Open in Burlington

Vermonter Hannah George used to be a dolphin scientist, but after several years working her "dream job" in Minnesota, she says, she felt she "was constantly being pulled toward something else." That something was juicing, which has "been a huge part of my life for a while now," George says. Having realized that she wanted to own a business, she moved home to Windsor and started the Vermont Juice Company this past January.

When her husband was offered a job in Burlington, George decided to move the company north. She recently secured a retail space at 77 Main Street in Burlington, next to Skirack.

George has formulated 12 flavors of raw, organic, fresh-pressed juices, which she bottles daily so customers can just grab them and go, she says. The menu offers four green juices, five with fruits and vegetables and three almond milks — a balanced selection well-suited to cleansing. "A lot of the [flavors] were based on the idea of a cleanse, so we tailored our flavors to that," George says.

And, she adds, she uses a special hydraulic press — a cool operator that keeps oxygen and heat out of the process. That means Vermont Juice's fruits, veggies and nuts remain completely raw: "All the nutrients and enzymes stay completely intact," George says.

At the moment, George says she and her husband are building out the Burlington juice shop and expect to open it in mid-September. Once up and running, the company will also be juicing at a stand on Burlington's Church Street, near Homeport.
