MONKTON — Brothers Greg and Rob Cota have been farming since they were old enough to reach the tractor pedals. Now, at ages 69 and 78, respectively, they are ready to sell their land and retire.
But the idea of selling their rolling acres of prime farmland to a developer is not appealing.
“I don’t want to see houses on the land, I want to see cattle on the land,” Greg Cota said. “That’s what rural Vermont is about — it’s farming.”
