ADDISON COUNTY — According to the National Weather Service, June’s rainfall in Burlington of 8.67 inches proved to be the third highest since 1884, trailing only 1922 and 2013.
Nobody had to tell Vermont farmers that news.
“Every year we have our little times and issues with wet weather,” said Peter James, co-owner of Weybridge’s Monument Farms. “But this year it’s been the entire month of June.”
Heavy rain and clouds in June pose special problems for dairy farmers.
