2024 Annual  Meeting

The 2024 Annual Meeting was held on Wednesday, January 17th at Newmont Farm, Bradford, VT

Special thanks to Walt and Margaret Gladstone for hosting; and to Willie, Becky, Abby, Heather, and Tom for presenting.  And Thank You everyone for getting together.  It was really great to see so many people in person.  There were 71 of us there - more than half farmers.

We didn't get to everything on our agenda, so let's plan to get together again.  More on that to come.
