Manchester Center, VT
Wagatha’s, a small company in Manchester Center, Vermont, that produces organic dog biscuits has started selling bundles of maple sticks as boutique dog toys for $12.95 a pot.
Over the last two years, Wagatha’s has sold thousands of Fetchstix around the country. As you might expect, they don’t do very well in Vermont, but sticks are rare commodities in a lot of places. “We sold a surprising number of these in Las Vegas,” Norm explains. “They don’t even have trees there.”
