Fall/Winter

November 9, 2017  Middlebury College to Host Addison County Farmers from 6:30-8:30pm at Twilight Hall, 50 Franklin Street Middlebury, Vermont
Local farmers are taking some time off the farm after the harvest to meet with interested community members who have questions about farming practices in Vermont, today, and in the future. A wide variety of local farmers will be available to discuss the practices they use on their farms to protect water quality, conserve the soil and remain economically viable in today’s markets. Addison County Farm Bureau is helping to sponsor this opportunity for the public to ask questions. More Info: please contact Jon Turner at wildrootsfarmvt@gmail.com, Molly Anderson at mollya@middlebury.edu
