Help shape the ‘future of farming’ at Farm Bureau meeting Oct. 16

VERGENNES — Addison County legislators will present information and answer questions on Monday, Oct. 16, at 6 p.m. at the Addison County Farm Bureau Annual Meeting at St. Peter’s Parish Hall in Vergennes.
Part of this meeting will be used to develop resolutions that will be sent on to the Vermont Farm Bureau for adoption. Those are then forwarded to American Farm Bureau.
Strong efforts from Addison County Farmers and others across the county have brought about change in agricultural policies, local farm bureau officials said. Farm Bureau has an obligation to take an active role on the local, state and national levels to unite behind a plan that will stabilize prices, improve water quality and advance all phases of agriculture, they added.
Also on the annual meeting agenda are discussion of the state’s Current Use Program, which may be threatened by a number of potential changes in the Legislature, the state budget and the local foods program. Door Prizes from local sources will be drawn during the meeting. All members, potential members, and guests are welcome.
“If you would like to help shape the future of farming, this is a grassroots way to help,” Bill Scott said. “Come to the meeting an offer input. Join Addison County Farm Bureau and make a difference by making your voice heard.”
Dinner at 6:30 p.m., $12 with RSVP by Oct. 15; $15 at the door.
Meeting begins at 7:15 p.m. RSVP to Bill Scott @ 802-881-8836 or [email protected].
