Vermont Agriculture Overview

Agriculture lives at the core of Vermont’s culture, its heritage, and its economy. Vermont agriculture provides thousands of local jobs and contributes more than $281 million to Vermont’s Gross Domestic Product every year.  With an unwavering commitment to quality, integrity, and sustainability, Vermont is a national leader in many agricultural sectors, and world-renowned for its food and forestry products. As it has been for centuries, agriculture is an essential part of the Vermont way of life.
