104th Annual Meeting and Conference
Vermont Farm Bureau Annual Meeting Honors Top Farmers
MIDDLEBURY, Vt. -- The 104th annual meeting of the Vermont Farm Bureau (VFB) on Nov.1-2 included awards to Vermont’s top farmers; panel discussions by top agricultural experts on the future of farming and land management, and a review of the top issues facing Vermont’s farming community in the coming year.
“It was amazing to see such a large turn out despite additional struggles from the Halloween storm. Farm members know how important it is to set our annual policies that guide our advocacy efforts to support all farmers in Vermont,” noted VFP President Joseph Tisbert. “We had important discussions on trade tariffs, improving immigration policies to increase year-round labor, modernizing dairy pricing, and hemp regulations. These important discussions will give our team clear guidance as they represent us at the county, state and national levels for this coming year.”
Vermont Farm Bureau, based in Richmond, is the state's largest non-profit trade association of 2,500-plus agricultural producers in all 14 Vermont counties.
With help from our generous donors, our bidders, and eventual winners, over $1,600 was raised to help Vermont Farm Bureau continue it's efforts in being the united voice of agriculture in Vermont.
