Do you have ideas or concerns about our Vermont's agricultural economy? We want to hear from you! Join us at one of two meetings in southern Vermont this May, and share your ideas and feedback about farming in Vermont! This is a chance to meet your Agriculture Agency leadership, and discuss the issues that are on your mind.
Under the direction of Agriculture Secretary Anson Tebbetts, and Deputy Secretary Alyson Eastman, the Vermont Agency of Agriculture, Food, and Markets is continuing its statewide listening tour, begun last year. The public meetings, which will be held in Rutland and Brattleboro, are designed to open the lines of communication between the Agency, the farming community, and the public.
“We’re inviting farmers and all Vermonters interested in agriculture, to attend these meetings and share thoughts and ideas about the future of farming in our state,” said Tebbetts. “I want to listen and learn about the issues that matter most to our farmers, and how the Agency can support them.”
These two meetings follow the Listening Tour meetings held in 2017 in the northern and central parts of the state. As always, if you are unable to visit us during these meetings, the agency is always ready to assist with any questions or concerns you may have. Reach us at 802-828-5667, or write to us at AGR.Helpdesk@vermont.gov .
