While the evening news tells the increasingly alarming statistics of the decline of the Vermont Family Farm, there was no sign of that on Friday, May 21st at the Farm Day in Vergennes. Gathered from around the area, FFA students, local farmers and a host of agricultural businesses showed the area that farming in indeed alive and continuing in Vermont.  For children it was a time to play in the sun and share in the bounty of fresh milk, produce and to see the animals. For all who attended, it was a reaffirmation of the dedication to agriculture and the farming traditions in Addison County.
