2013 VGFA Annual Meeting

VT Grass Farmers Association Annual Meeting & Pasture Discussion

Wednesday, September 25

NRCS State Office Conference Room, 354 Mountain View Drive, Colchester, VT

 

1 to 3 pm, followed by VGFA Business Meeting

 

Calling out to VGFA members and friends:

As federal funding shifts and the goals of environmental and agricultural organizations evolve, it’s time for the VT Grass Farmers Association (now in its 17th year) to evaluate its existing priorities through a strategic planning process.  What better time to start than at the annual meeting?

 

Farmers, service providers and statewide partners are invited to attend this public meeting in person or via a conference line.  Refreshments will be served.

 

Please join us for a frank discussion about the role you see grass farming play in the future, what you feel Vermont does well and where you think we can all improve.  Stories to share about transitioning your existing farm to a rotational grazing system, new farmers seeking to establish systems, state partners trying to blend policy and practicality are all welcome. 

 

As VGFA looks to the future, it will be stronger and more effective farmer organization through your guidance and ideas.  Please take some time to share your thoughts with us!

If you plan to attend, we ask that you RSVP to help us with seating, conference line and refreshment planning.
