Re: “Sweet Deal: A Giant Sugaring Operation Banks on Maple

Vermonters have been producing Maple syrup for centuries and we do not need large a Large Company like in the North East kingdom producing large quantities of maple syrup and trying to force out the Small farms the do produce it and sell it. What i would say is send those who bought the land and send them sailing back home to CONNECTICUT

Re: “The Life, Death and Afterlife of a Vermont Steer

I cannot begin to understand someone who can love an animal, then watch it be murdered, then eat it. But what little meat I eat must be of this sort....grass fed, humanely slaughtered.

Re: “The Life, Death and Afterlife of a Vermont Steer

Full disclosure requires revealing that I am not even a non-practicing vegetarian, so this may seem either hypocritical and or oxymoronic. However, reading this article reminds me of a story by the Russian author Andrei Paltonov, where a cow's calf is sold:
The cow was not eating anything now; she was breathing slowly and silently, and a heavy, difficult grief languished inside her, one that could have no end because, unlike a human being, she was unable to allay this grief inside her with words, consciousness, a friend or any other distraction…she only needed one thing – her son, the calf – and nothing could replace him: Neither a human being, nor grass, nor the sun.

Investment groups moving in on the sugaring business.. If that isn't dismal, I'm not sure what would qualify.

Re: “Vermonters Sow Seeds for the 'Napa Valley of Hard Cider'

Great article, Ken! Way to go Bradshaw! 'Bout time someone gave you some spotlight. Been drinking Terry's blends for years now!

Re: “Is Selling Raw Milk Viable in Rural Vermont?

I am pretty sure weekly limit for Tier II production would fall in the 260 gallons a week (150 quarts per day) range according to current VT regulations.

Re: “Raw Deal? Farmers Push Back Against Unpasteurized Milk Regulations

Freedom to make your own choices of what food you eat, and whether you trust you you get it from...should be so fundamental. Industrial production and conditions for what most people eat are so unhealthy.. producing such unhealthy animals and antibiotic-laced food products... why are those considered normal, and the more natural product less so?
So backward. I'd rather take my chances with closer to natural foods, than with the mass-processed, drugged, sprayed substances most people consume regularly. Should be my choice.
