Vermont Farm Bureau
Farming supports and complements the equine industry. Without our Vermont farmers how would we feed our horses? Many of our horse farms are Farm Bureau members.
VTFB’s mission is “To Serve and Advance Vermont Agriculture”. One of the ways this is accomplished is by having a legislative director. This person attends sessions and hearings in order to follow bills that are introduced which affect agriculture.
The VHC has been active in attending committee meetings and other opportunities to interact with legislators on issues which affect our industry. From the Revised Accepted Agricultural Practices (RAAP) to the Water Quality bill and Current Use eligibility you can find out more information by contacting Jackie Folsom (the legislative director) at Jackie Folsom @email@example.com or by going to vtfb.org. Check out the benefits of being a member! There are great discounts on heating fuel, Nationwide insurance and many more which can save you more than the cost of membership.
