By Emma Cotton

By CYRUS READY-CAMPBELL of VTDigger.org



Vermont’s maple syrup output this year nearly matched last year’s record, according to the USDA, driven largely by a continuing increase in the number of taps.

Posted on July 31, 2017 |
By Addison Independent



VERMONT — You can tell a lot about a farm by looking closely at the soil. That’s why the new, statewide program to recognize Vermont’s most environmentally friendly farmers will be based on soil-sampling and monitoring.

Last week Gov. Phil Scott announced the pilot launch of the new Vermont Environmental Stewardship Program (VESP), which will use soil-based analysis to identify farmers who are going above and beyond to protect our natural resources.
