ORWELL — Two thousand five hundred turkeys gobble as they mill about in one of Stonewood Farm’s eight massive turkey barns. Up in front is a pen of huge critters that will each yield a 50-pound bird, once roasted. Imagine that on your Thanksgiving table (and the oven that could hold it!).

MIDDLEBURY — A Salisbury farm will soon be turning on-site cow manure and Addison County food waste into renewable energy that will push Middlebury College’s campus beyond its goal of carbon neutrality.

The Goodrich Farm will host a Farm Powered-brand anaerobic digester that will, on a daily basis, process 100 tons of manure from the 900-cow farm off Shard Villa Road and 165 tons of organic food waste per day from some of the Middlebury area’s biggest organizations, including the Agri-Mark/Cabot cheese making plant in Middlebury.

Those pesky cosmetic things, that with a good cleaning will disappear to reveal your beautiful, well-designed and thought-out living space?

Posted on November 20, 2017 |
By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — The Middlebury selectboard has declined Aqua ViTea’s request for a five-year suspension of its municipal property tax levy, a reduction that would have totaled around $92,400.
