Faces of Vermont Agriculture is a collection of short video profiles and a 22-minute mini documentary that highlight outstanding stewards of the land who live and farm in the Green Mountain State. These dedicated farmers tell us in their own words, “Why Conservation Matters,”—to their bottom line, to the health and sustainability of the resources on and around their farm, and to the future of farming. They were unveiled recently on the farmers.gov blog with an introduction from one of the highlighted farms, Last Resort, in Monkton. Farm owner Eugenie Doyle wrote a beautiful piece to share what motivated her and her husband Sam to participate in the video series.
One of the featured farms is Franklin County’s own Choiniere Family Farm, in Highgate. Listen and watch as these farmers share what motivates them to care for the land.
We hope you will join us in sharing these videos on social media. VT NRCS and Peregrine Productions produced this series.
