Vermont is experiencing a boom in food systems development and the growth in diversification, markets, growing season, value-added production and localization puts increased infrastructure demands on producers and processors. The UVM Extension Agricultural Engineering Program is geared to assisting these food entrepreneurs in a rapidly changing and highly competitive industry.
This education and outreach program is dedicated to enhancing Vermont's food systems. We focus on analysis, design, evaluation and adoption of infrastructure, technology and equipment to meet the needs of producers and processors. Contact us if you have specific technical education needs, and research and development ideas related to Vermont food systems.
