August 14, 2023 - One month after a devasting flood the economic reality is becoming clearer. Vermont’s farmers, agricultural businesses, and communities sustained millions of dollars in damage and face strong head winds to recover. The Vermont Agency of Agriculture, Food & Markets (VAAFM) developed and disseminated a survey requesting information from farms, agricultural businesses, and service and non-profit organizations to understand the overall impact of this natural disaster. The purpose of this survey is to capture the type and scale of the damage agricultural producers suffered throughout the state between July 7 and July 18, 2023.
The Severe Weather and Flooding Loss & Damage Survey has been available for farmers and agricultural sector businesses to respond to since July 30th, 2023. All data displayed in the dashboard below is the summary of that data, reported by participants. The accuracy of this data should be considered incomplete as the Agency believes not all impacted individuals and businesses have yet reported.
