Agriculture: VPP Platform

Progressives know that agriculture, especially family farms, including timber, are essential to Vermont’s economy and cultural heritage. We will work to:

  • Support fair-trade prices for Vermont’s farmers and producers.
  • Invest in agricultural infrastructure with priority given to locally-owned, farmer-controlled enterprises such as vegetable-, meat-, and dairy-processing plants.
  • Support farm- and community-based enterprises with policies that open new markets, including direct sales to consumers.
  • Support farmers’ transition to organic and sustainable practices.
