The Farming Project (1994-2000)

    A nine part series on the history of Vermont farming, its importance in the development of the state, the practical and public policy issues facing Vermonters today, and a celebration of the Vermont farmer. The series began with an overview of the history of Vermont agriculture, continued with four programs on farming in Vermont, and concluded with a series of four "town meetings".
