New hands take over on Monkton farm; Land Trust keeps 'prime' ag soil in ag

Posted on October 9, 2017 |

CotaFarm5186.jpg

MONKTON — Young Nathan Baldwin, all of three years old, races happily through the dairy barn on the farm formerly run by the Cota brothers, stopping to hug a few weeks’ old heifers. They nudge back playfully.

Sharrow cmyk1.jpg

BRISTOL — Vermont is often described as culturally homogenous, yet nearly a third of Vermonters have French Canadian ancestry.

In a free program presented by the One World Library Project, folklorist Gregory Sharrow will discuss these influences on Thursday, Oct. 12, from 7 to 8:30 p.m. at the Lawrence Memorial Library in Bristol.
