Vermont Farm Bureau in the Classroom:
Bear & Book Purchases Supporting AG Book Placement in Area School

Vermont Farm Bureau and the 14 County Farm Bureaus are actively working to place the following books into Elementary Schools throughout the State of Vermont: , "Sleep Tight Farm," by Eugenie Doyle (a VT Children's Author); "John Deere, That's Who," a story about a Rutland Native, John Deere; and "Right This Very Minute," a farm-to-plate story. All are beautifully illustrated and available for purchase via cash or check (made out to Vermont Foundation for Agriculture).

Representatives from the different county bureaus are delivering and reading at least one of these books to a group of children at each area school.




The Vermont Foundation for Agriculture and Vermont Teddy Bear have teamed up to sell these two (2) adorable bears with custom made shirts celebrating the 100th year of AFBF. 20% of the proceeds from the sale of these bears goes toward placing these books into the schools.

Working Lands Enterprise Board Announces FY19 Grantees

$823,000 Invested in Vermont Ag & Forestry Businesses

 

March 21, 2019 / Montpelier, VT - The Working Lands Enterprise Initiative (WLEI) and governing board (WLEB) were created by the legislature in 2012 to stimulate economic development in the agricultural and forestry sectors. WLEI is a collaborative effort between the Agency of Agriculture, Food, and Markets, Department of Forest, Parks, and Recreation, and the Agency of Commerce and Community Development. WLEB, which finalizes all funding decisions, achieves this goal by making investments across businesses and service providers in critical leverage points which will have the highest return on investment. This initiative supports Vermont entrepreneurs by providing financial assistance to help innovate and grow their business while also creating jobs, building infrastructure, and promoting growth in economies and communities of Vermont’s working landscape. 

  For 2019, the Working Lands Enterprise Board deployed $823,000 in grants and contracts, to (18) Agriculture and Forestry businesses and service providers around the State. Part of the strategic plan for this year was the creation of Industry Impact grants for projects ranging from $50,000-$150,000. These projects must impact the supply chain for low grade wood or dairy, two industries determined by the WLEB in need of larger investments to achieve viability.
