Posted on November 11, 2013 |
By Elise Tillinghast for The Outside Story



chipmunk.JPG

Two chipmunks vie for seeds on our front lawn. One lives directly underneath the bird feeder. Another hails from the far side of the house, address unknown.

Posted on October 10, 2013 |
By Zach Despart



WEYBRIDGE — The partial shutdown of the federal government and the expiration of the farm bill have put Addison County dairy farmers in a precarious position. Without a price stabilization program or access to crucial information like crop reports and other federal resources, farmers have to make important business decisions based on educated guesses rather than hard data.

But it’s not just the farmers who are suffering. Some of those who support farms and the farm economy are also closed out of jobs or frustrated by government shutdown.
