COVID-19 INFORMATION FOR AGRICULTURE AND FOOD BUSINESSES

To aid Vermonters as we all respond to and recover from the COVID-19 outbreak, the Agency of Agriculture has developed a recovery resource center of available tools including financial assistance programs, market channel resources, and a series of Frequently Asked Questions to help businesses and individuals navigate the resources available in this time of need.

The Agency of Agriculture continues to ensure functions critical to the agency and industry needs are met and carried out in the interest of public safety and public health. These functions include meat and poultry inspection, milk testing and inspections, regulatory disease testing in livestock, and licensing related to dairy, livestock, poultry, and agricultural commodities.

Additional tools, resources and program information will be added as they become available.
